Road Weather Information SystemAfter a serious car accident in March 2008, Dubai Municipality has decided to purchase and install a fog early warning and forecasting system. MicroStep-MIS has been chosen by Dubai Municipality to realize this project. We have managed to build a unique and complex Road Warning System for the Municipality of Dubai. The system was installed in 2009 and it is operating properly till today.MicroStep-MIS has decided to use Birals SWS100. In spite of the fact that at the time of the tender it was a fairly new product, we had an excellent long-term experience with the HSS series of sensors; therefore, we have expected the SWS100 would be of a similar quality. After the long-term operation we can confirm that our expectations were fulfilled. We havent had any problems with the installed visibility sensors, says Jozef Omelka, Managing Director, MicroStep-MIS.IMS Road Weather Information System consists of meteorological stations strategically located alongside the highways.

A sandstorm is a situation occurring when the horizontal visibility is reduced due to the sand and dust in the air below 1000 m.Our challenge was to predict the dust event which reduces visibility below 3000 m at least 2 hours in advance. Sand and dust in the air during such situations can cause inconvenience to people with respiratory health problems. The problem is the most significant in the Arabian Peninsula, as it experiences frequent sandstorms.This was the main reason behind Dubai Municipality starting the sandstorm prediction project. It was an extension to the existing Fog Monitoring and Forecasting System. The system is based on a 3D weather prediction model. It is further integrated with a model for sand source areas that were transported by wind and settled.Eng. Mohamed Mahmoud Mashroom, the Director of Survey Department of Dubai Municipality commented on this occasion We are very proud of the results of this project, which is not only useful to our department, but also to the whole nation and for the people living here.Sandstorm modeling is part of the web based Dubai Municipality visibility monitoring system, which consists of: 15 AWS (2 of the stations are sea buoys) UDCS/CLDB Database Weather prediction model Fog prediction model Sandstorm prediction model References & Success StoriesMicroStep-MIS, www.microstep-mis.com 2017, All specifications subject to change without prior notice.16On the left: Decreased visibility due to the sand and dust in the air at Al Mamzar station on 16.03.2014 On the right: Normal visibility at Al Mamzar station on 17.03.2014Smartphone applicationNajm Sohail, is the name of the Weather Early-Warning application that visualizes sandstorm forecast in Dubai with an advance of up to two days.Thanks to this mobile application, people can now anticipate dust/sand storm conditions in Dubai, 48 hours in advance with just a click on their smart phones.The mobile application aims at helping residents to pre-plan their outdoor activities, inform allergy and asthma sufferers about potential health risks, and also warn motorists about the visibility conditions on the roads.Tsunami Early Warning SystemTsunami is a series of waves in a water body caused by the displacement of a large volume of water.

During the audit in 1999, several applications of the Automated Weather Observation Systems at the Dammam and Riyadh airports were found unprepared for the Y2K problem (the Millennium bug).This caused the Presidency of Meteorology and Environment (former Meteorological and Environmental Protection Agency, MEPA) to ask its suppliers to provide solutions to the problem. By the time the Riyadh airport was already in operation, the Dammam airport was only scheduled to be finished towards the end of 1999.Due to the highly demanding process of Riyadh airportinstalling AWOS at the airports, their supplier rejected to upgrade the system mainly due to the insufficient time requirement.Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Meteorology of Oman (DGMAN) recommended MicroStep-MIS to PME for a complete system changeover. In the past, we have built strong relationship with DGMAN as we have successfullycommissioned the new AWOS at their Muscat-Seeb International airport in 1998.MicroStep-MIS has accepted the challenge; in spite of the extremely tight schedule MicroStep-MIS has successfully managed to provide the essential AWOS functionality for the ICAO CAT III category airports at Dammam and Riyadh on the December 23rd 1999, allowing the airports to remain in operation for commercial traffic.References & Success Stories MicroStep-MIS, www.microstep-mis.com 2017, All specifications subject to change without prior notice.21TV Weather Studio, CLDB & Web ServerYEMEN Tender: TV Weather Studio, CLDB & Web Server Client: Civil Aviation and Meteorology Authority of YemenContractor: Ask VisualYemenCivil Aviation and Meteorology Authority of Yemenis responsible for meteorological sector in the Republic of Yemen and the elements involved in monitoring and forecasting extreme weather occurrenceMet TV studio with CLDB and web server was delivered to Civil Aviation & Meteorology Authority of Yemen with focus on weather graphics presentation for the media, specifically the TV and the Internet.

The magnitude of 5.4 earthquake on May 19th, 2010 damaged buildings in the town of Al Ays and prompted the Saudi Arabian government to order evacuations of 40,000 people from their homes.All these events forced the Presidency of Meteorology and Environment to prepare the ash dispersion and impact study for Al Ays region. MicroStep-MIS, as a company with vast experience in seismology, meteorology, and modeling was chosen to conduct the study. The project Study of Volcanic Ash Trajectories and its Environmental Impact was aimed to provide ash dispersion and impact study for Al Ays region in different seasons of the year. The study consisted of seven parts: Ash and Gas Source Characteristics Volcanological Expertise, Climatology of the Studied Region, Detailed Weather Modeling of the Studied Region, Volcanic Ash Transport, Selected Gases Dispersion, Summary and Recommendations.Detailed Weather ModelingDetailed weather modeling is necessary to conclude the wind flows of the region, which in turn are necessary for ash trajectories modeling. The weather modeling provides other parameters, such as, temperature, humidity, pressure, surface fluxes, etc., which critically influence ash trajectories, height of capping inversion, and ash deposition to the ground. Data from the period 1990-2009 were used for the creation of wind flows and monthly weather patterns in the region.Volcanic Ash TransportHaving detailed weather and wind flows data of the region, the Trajectory Dispersion Model IMS Model Suite is put into effect. The model is capable of: Modeling dispersion on local, regional and continental scale Operating with microscale, mesoscale and macroscale meteorology Simulating boundary layer turbulence by adding semi-random component to the large scale wind, using Monte Carlo techniques Use of modern profile method or NWP outputs directly to categorize atmospheric stability and to assess the magnitude of random component Is suitable for scientific researchVolcanic Ash Trajectories and their Environmental Impacts STUDY FOR THE AL AYS REGION Tender: Volcanic Ash Trajectories and their Environmental Impacts, Study for the Al Ays RegionClient: Presidency of Meteorology and Environment, Saudi ArabiaContractor: EOCLSaudi Arabia: Al Sys region,volcano sitePresidency of Meteorology and Environment (PME)is responsible for environmental protection, pollution control, and establishing environmental quality standards.References & Success Stories MicroStep-MIS, www.microstep-mis.com 2017, All specifications subject to change without prior notice.23Challenge Phenomena that can adversely affect inhabitants, ecosystems, agriculture, traffic Interdisciplinary problem - volcanology/meteorology and climatology/chemicals dispersion Assessment of areas potentially endangered by VA even before the volcano eruptsOur solution Volcanological research High performance computing Climatic downscaling Coupling of meteorological and dispersion models with special focus to ash particlesAchievements Genuine research results Comprehensive study accepted by regional environmental authorityWithin this study, the model was used in close coupling with a meteorological model to simulate the following important phenomena: Advection mechanism, creation of wind fields Turbulence mechanism, both mechanical and thermal (buoyancy) turbulence Capping layers were identified, so that particles/gases are mostly trapped in the boundary layer Transport mechanisms of ash particles and gases Dry deposition mechanism, using the deposition velocity concept Wet deposition mechanism, utilizing the rainfall amount influence to depositionThe study was professionally published in printed copies and interactive DVD.

Observation data of PAGASA are very rich and are coming from various observation networks. These includes: observation network of synoptic stations, observation network of agromet stations, observation network of climatic stations, PAGASA Automatic Weather Station observation network, DOST ASTI Automatic Weather Stations observation network, Flood Forecasting and Warning observation network, Upper air stations, Doppler radars, meteorological satellites, wind profiler station, marine buoys and tropical cyclone tracks.Before the observed data are presented to the end user, they are processed by a wide variety of decoding modules and afterwards by quality control module. Quality control module includes data validity (elements limits), internal consistency (elements relationships), temporal consistency (rate of change) as well as spatial consistency.The CLDB provides storage of the observed data together with its meta-data information structures. The meta-data are very important part of climate data. The CLDB allows storing various meta-data inside the database according to WMO requirements and recommendations including textual and numerical information, accompanied by copies of datasheets, photos of station, sensors and environment, calibration certificates etc.ModulesThe CLDB offers wide variety of output modules used for presentation of stored data by end users. These include Statistical summaries module, which offer daily, monthly, annual summaries, as well as WMO ETCCDI Extreme Indices, Standardized Precipitation and Heat index and many others. Manual Data Entry module is highly configurable and integrates the functionality of data tracking, data entering and data repair. Data Entry offers a comprehensive tabular view of station data. More than 60 data entries were created in PUMIS.Map Analysis module is flexible computer graphics system designed for professional use. It provides map visualization of climatological information, and helps users to create more comprehensive view and anomalies detection by comparing historical and currently received data. 22 Map profiles were created in PUMIS to provide all necessary map visualizations of data for end users.As the PUMIS is based on modular architecture it was possible to build special nonstandard decoding modules to process all PAGASA observations as well as to design special output modules. Tropical Cyclones application is one of them. Specialized meteorologists connect tropical cyclone tracks together with forecast data and present them on fully Meta data modules Statistical summaries modules PhilippinesReferences & Success Stories MicroStep-MIS, www.microstep-mis.com 2017, All specifications subject to change without prior notice.33interactive map.
