World Meteorological Organization (WMO)


In the framework of the WMO World Weather Watch the Hydrometcentre of Russia maintains its international commitments as:

  • World Meteorological Centre "Moscow" (WMC Moscow);
  • Global Producing Centre "Moscow" (GPC Moscow).

More specific information on the functions of WMCs, RSMCs and GPCs is available in WMO Manual on the Global Data-Processing and Forecasting System.


Regional and bilateral cooperation with other National weather services

The Hydrometcentre of Russia is involved into the bilateral scientific and technical cooperation of Roshydromet with weather services of China, Cuba, Germany, Finland, France, India, Poland, Republic of Korea, and into activities of the Interstate Council for Hydrometeorology of the CIS countries.

The North EurAsia Climate Centre (NEACC)


The NEACC was established by the Intergovernmental Council for Hydrometeorology of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Ukraine) at its 18th Session held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, 4-5 April 2007, with the aim to provide regional climate-related services to CIS countries.

In the WMO Regional Association VI (Europe) NEACC works as one of Long-Range Forecast nodes of the RA-VI Regional Climate Network.
In the WMO Regional Association II (Asia) NEACC works as a Multifunctional Regional Climate Center.




The Consortium for Small-scale Modeling (COSMO)


The COSMO Consortium was formed in October 1998. Its general goal is to develop, improve and maintain a non-hydrostatic limited-area atmospheric model, to be used both for operational and for research applications by the members of the consortium. Moreover, within a licence agreement, the COSMO model may be used for operational and research applications by other national (hydro-)meteorological services, universities and research institutes. The consortium COSMO has been officially created in 2001, prolonging a long-standing collaboration of DWD and MeteoSwiss in numerical weather prediction (NWP). It has grown from initially 4 to 7 members, all national meteorological services (NMS) with 4 additional contributing institutions (regional or military services).

Roshydromet (actually the Hydrometcentre of Russia) joined the COSMO Consortium in 2009. A close cooperation with the COSMO partners plays a substantial role in the enhancement of the meteorological services provided by Roshydromet. COSMO was the basic mesoscale forecasting system of Roshydromet in the meteorological support of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
