More Information (under review)

For more information on the observation stations and instruments used to collect measurements which are transmitted in a MODLERAD message, the Met Office Surface Data Users Guide, describes the meteorological surface data in the Met Office Database - MIDAS.

For more information about the observation stations which transmit the MODLERAD message, the MIDAS stations map gives the exact locations of all conforming observation stations.
