The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has published its preliminary program for CIMO TECO-2018, taking place in Amsterdam, Netherlands, from October 8-11. The conference will be hosted by the worlds biggest and most significant meteorological show Meteorological Technology World Expo running from October 9-11 at Amsterdam RAI. This years CIMO TECO speakers have been asked to address four key topics: the characterization and standardization of environmental measurements traceability assurance; emerging measurement technologies: from development to operation; ensuring sustainability of measurements; and measurement and integration challenges in the next 20 years. The WMO had an outstanding response to its call for papers for the conference, with more than 220 high-quality abstracts submitted from all WMO regions. Key highlights from the program include a presentation on the Traceability and Calibration of Weather Radar Reflectivity Measurements by Means of a Target Simulator, by Dr Marc Schneebeli, Switzerland; the Remote Measurements of Volcanic Plume Electrification Using a Sparse Network Technique, by Dr Jeff L Lapierre, USA; and Experiences with Quality Evaluation of AMDAR Observations, by Dr Jitze van der Meulen, Netherlands.
