This report is the final report of the management committee of the project COST 73, concerned with weather radar networking. The objectives of the project, which ran for five years, were as follows: (i) to specify methods and procedures for the efficient and appropriate exchange of weather radar data on an operational basis throughout Western Europe, using procedures approved by the World Meteorological Organisation, and to gain pre-operational experience; (ii) to continue research into exchanges of such data using land or satellite communications, or both; (iii) to encourage the development of the competitiveness of European industry in this and associated fields, by the preparation of guideline specifications for radar and display hardware and software; (iv) to investigate ways of using satellite data as a possible complement for radar data in areas with sparse or no radar coverage; (v) to examine the requirements of short-period forecasting techniques and numerical weather prediction systems for European radar network data; (vi) to encourage training in the use of radar network systems.
