COST Action 717 emerged from a series of COST Actions focused upon the development and use of weather radar, i.e. Actions 72, 73, and 75 on potential of weather radars to measure precipitation, networking of radars, and advanced radar capabilities, respectively. Action 717 emphasized the application of radars and defined, to this end, the requirements on European radar data for their use in Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and hydrological models. In order to improve flood warnings and management of river flow in rural and urban catchments, radar engineers, meteorologists and hydrologists were brought together. They initiated a European-wide action to homogenize procedures related to acquisition and quality characterization of radar data, an effort which continues beyond the duration of the Action in EURMETNET’s OPERA initiative.
