dc.description.abstractThis handbook is a product of the Offshore Weather Panel, which includes representatives from the offshore petroleum industry and from forecasting agencies situated around the North Sea. The Offshore Panel was established through a joint initiative by the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (OGP), and marine forecasting centres and agencies. Through a dialogue between service providers and users, the Panel developed the first Handbook of Weather Forecasting WMO/TD-N0 850 (1998). This revision of the Handbook, completed in April 2003, reflects the increased importance of quality assurance within weather forecasting services. The revision outlines a new range of services derived from recent technological and scientific advances. Further, in response to feedback from the offshore industry, a chapter has been added on weather services for Helicopter Operations. It is intended to incorporate the revision into a more formal update of the WMO/TD-NO850, within the next couple of years.
