MMC-2016, organised as part of EMRP project, facilitated communication and co-operation between metrology and meteorology communities


The second International Conference on Metrology for Meteorology and Climate (MMC-2016), organised as part of EMRP project Metrology for essential climate variables (ENV58 MeteoMet2), hosted a number of scientific sessions and satellite events that motivated the in depth discussion of metrology applications for meteorological observations and climate change evaluations.

The conference also covered the achievements of EMRP project ENV58, which investigated the traceability of essential climate variables to the SI.

MMC-2016 was held in Madrid at the end of September 2016. It was organised in conjunction with the WMO ‘TECO’ conference and the Meteorological Technical World Expo 2016.

The conference was attended by participants from across the globe including representatives of WMO and leading manufacturers and triggered a deep interaction between the meteorology community and metrologists, resulting in the planning of future common activities.
