Paper Abstract

The presentation is intended as a contribution to greater understanding between data producers and data users. First, the historical evolution the data base for operational numerical weather prediction will be reviewed. Secondly, the characteristics of the various remotely-sensed observation systems will be outlined. Third, the objective analysis section of the data assimilation system will be described, with emphasis on the treatment of remotely sensed data. The discussion will conclude with some speculation concerning the challenges presented by new observing systems.
