By processing these signals, the ROM SAF contributes well calibrated, accurate and stable data to serve as input in Numerical Weather Prediction Models in near real time. The consistent processing of radio occultation data from various satellite missions over the last decades enables the generation of climate records of essential characteristics, in particular of the upper atmosphere.
