Météo-France is the French organisation responsible for supplying information nation-wide on the state of the atmosphere and the repercussions this may have on human life and property.
To meet its operational requirements, Météo-France:
Météo-France will contribute to the meteorology activity in SIMDAT project. Météo-France will participate in the definition and specifications of the requirements and in the testing and validation of the VGISC prototype.
Together, the meteorology partners will build, operate and support a prototype of the data Grid using the output of the SIMDAT technology activity. It is planned to evolve this test bed to a comprehensive grid for the VGISC by the end of the project. It will also provide a significant experience of distributed databases in operational environments.
