  • La Financière agricole's collective harvest insurance offers, for the cultivation of hay, the choice between protection against loss of yield (quantity) or protection for quantity and quality. The valuation of losses is carried out collectively for all agricultural enterprises in the same weather station territory. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

  • The MODIS Land Surface Temperature (LST) product provided is a monthlycomposite configured on a 0.05° Climate Model Grid (CMG). It includes both daytime andnighttime surface temperatures, taken at 11 um and 4 um (night). This product has beenscaled. To convert the raster values to a Kelvin temperature scale, multiply by a factor of 0.02.

  • AROME-Arctic is a convection-permitting deterministic atmosphere ensemble model covering Svalbard, the Norwegian and Barents Seas. It is run in operational routine at Meteorologisk institutt (MET Norway). The model code is the same framework as MEPS; based on HARMONIE cy38h1.2. HARMONIE (Hirlam Aladin Regional/Meso-scale Operational NWP In Europe) is a cooperation including Meteo-France and their Aladin partners, the Hirlam group and also ECMWF with their IFS (Integrated Forecasting System) model. HARMONIE-AROME is a particular configuration of the Harmonie system suited for the highest resolutions. The version currently used is based on cycle 38h1.2. This model version is described in Muller et al. (2017). A major upgrade from cy38h1.2 to cy40h1.1 for AROME-Arctic is planned by 3rd quarter 2017. Cy40h1.1 is described by Bengtsson et al. (2017) and the most important change is a new treatment of the turbulent processes giving less low clouds and fog in the latest model version. AROME-Arctic has horizontal resolution of 2.5 km and has 65 vertical levels. It is ran up to 66 hours four times daily (00,06,12,18) with three-hourly cycling for data assimilation (3D-VAR). Lateral boundary data is from ECMWF HRES. The model system is routinely evaluated against observed weather and quarterly summaries for Norway are published at From termin time (00, 06, 12 and 18UTC) we use XXhr and XXminutes to receive and process all available observations, approximately XX minutes to run the AROME-Arctic system on the High Performance Computer capacity and the rest of the time to post-process forecast parameters further and process and distribute all data.

  • The Arctic SDI Geoportal provides access to geospatial data and services available via the Arctic SDI to support and facilitate monitoring, management and decision making, and support sustainable development in the Arctic. Specifically, the Arctic SDI Geoportal facilitates the discovery, visualization, evaluation, download and integration of geographic data from a variety of sources for the Arctic. The Arctic SDI Geoportal is the result of cooperative efforts between the National Mapping Agencies (NMAs) of the eight Arctic Council Member countries - Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. The Arctic SDI Geoportal includes reference data (such as the Arctic SDI basemap or Pan-Arctic Digital Elevation Model) and thematic data from various sources. Thematic data section includes themes such as oceans, climatology and geoscientific information. Most of the data covers the Arctic or the involved Arctic countries, but new data with a smaller or larger geographical extent may be accepted. The Geoportal allows searching placenames via a circumpolar gazetteer, and embedding interactive maps to any website. Some of the features require registration.
