Mongolia National Agency for Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring (NEMHEM)

NAMHEM’s main activity is weather forecasting. The agency receives data from the National Center for Remote Sensing and FY-2 satellites from China. There are 21 provincial offices; each province has a NAMHEM bureau. The information is centralized at NAMHEM and dispatched to other offices. NAMHEM gets accurate information on wind speed through a sensor situated on top of a 20 m tower in Ulaan Baator. The agency has super-computing facilities for weather modelling and produce mid-term information (10 days weather forecasts).

Mozambique National Meteorology Institute (INAM)

INAM is part of the Ministry for Transportation and Communication (MTC). provides daily weather forecasts (twice a day) to the public and INGC. Next to this forecasts, seasonal outlooks (especially before the rainy season) on expected precipitation and cyclone activity are communicated to INGC and other departments. The regional seasonal outlook is downscaled for Mozambique by INAM and an interpretation is provided to the different users.
