Fostering research excellence
in EU Outermost Regions
The RADAR project is aimed at acquiring a new weather radar to improve the radar coverage of the Lesser Antilles and therefore the reliability and accuracy of weather forecasts for our territories.
The radar data will support the forecasts of Météo France and the Meteorological Center of Sint-Maarten and will allow to deepen their analyses on the impacts of meteorological risks.
The Saint-Martin Community and the Government of Sint-Maarten contribute, with this project, their contribution to the existing climate observation network and reliable and accurate measurements will be available continuously for the region.
This project will then allow better coordination of alerts and vigilance.
