History

During the 18-20 March 2009 meeting of the EU COST action eg-climet (European Ground-Based Observations of Essential Variables for Climate and Operational Meteorology) in Oslo it was discussed to perform a survey of the MWR currently operative in Europe as well as in the rest of the world.
