National Meteorological Observations Network

Meteorological monitoring

The National Network of Meteorological Observations from the Republic of Moldova is composed from 14 meteorological stations and 32 posts.

The observations are carried out at 00 a.m., 3 a.m., 6 a.m., 9 a.m. 12 a.m., 3 p.m., 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. (GMT) on the following meteorological elements:

During 2004-2008 there were installed and put into operation 14 automatic weather stations (Chisinau, Briceni, Balti, Cornesti, Stefan Voda şi Cahul, Soroca, Falesti, Bravicea, „Codrii”, Baltata, Leova, Comrat, Ceadir-Lunga) AIIS „Pogoda”. The automatic stations allow the automatic and non-stop record of temperature, air humidity, wind speed and veracity, soil temperature at 5, 10, 15 and 20 cm depth.

In 2016 was carried out the modernization of the national meteorological network. At the 14 meteorological stations were installed new automatic weather stations, that measure all basic meteorological characteristics, including the amount of precipitations.

Also, actinometrical observations are made at Chisinau station (direct solar radiation, diffuse, summary, radiation balance and surface albedo).

Meteorologicalle observations at posts are carried out at 6a.m. and p.m. (GMT) on the following meteorological elements:

In 2016, in various parts of the country were installed 32 mini-stations automatic that measure temperature and air humidity, soil temperature at a depth of 5 cm and the amount of precipitations.

The weather stations and posts carry out non-stop observations on the hazardous meteorological phenomena.

Agrometeorological Monitoring

The agro meteorological observations in the Republic of Moldova are carried out on 13 weather stations and 19 agrometeorological posts.

The observation of the following parameters is carried out:

1. Temperature in the farmlands soil layers:

2. Soil humidity:

3. Observations and measurements of the soil and snow layer state during the cold season:

4. Development phases of the crops.

5. Observations on the crops state by determining the:

6. Determination of the crops production elements.

7. Analyses of the crops production elements.

8. Observations on the crops during the cold season:

9. Observations on the damage of sowings due to unfavorable meteorological phenomena, agricultural pests and diseases:

10. Observations on the field works.

11. General visual estimation of the crops vegetation state.

12. Quantitative estimation of the crops vegetation state.
