The robust operational real-time data receiving process allows for CDC to collect various real-time and non-real-time meteorological observations through the domestic satellite telecommunication system and the global telecommunication system on a daily basis. The existing data types include global upper-air sounding, ground observation, ocean observation, numerical analysis and prediction products, China's agricultural meteorology, ground intensive observation, weather radar detection, aircraft detection, FY-satellite detection, NWP analysis field, GPS-Met, GOES-9 satellite cloud image, soil moisture, aircraft message, dust storm monitoring, TOVS, ATOVS, wind profiling, etc. The Center checks the quality of various data collected, processes them, and stores them in a comprehensive meteorological database. All this is done in a timely fashion to generate various data products that are easy to apply. It provides the classification and sharing services for all kinds of users either on-line or off-line.
