Abstract

A survey of the so-called complex quality control (CQC) of meteorological information is presented. The principles of the CQC approach are formulated. The CQC of rawinsonde height and temperature data at mandatory isobaric surfaces is described in detail. This CQC has been implemented into routine practice at the Hydro-meteorological Center in Moscow. It has been also applied at the World Data Center in Obninsk for the quality control of the FGGE Level IIb data. Some results of the CQC operations are presented. Possibilities and ways to apply the CQC approach to other kinds of meteorological information are also discussed.
