These spotters are working on a voluntary basis with the purpose of contributing reports of significant or severe weather as well as accompanied damages. Their reports satisfy high quality demands and are provided according to strict guidelines. Thus, the ZAMG offers an extensive educational and training program to enable spotters for the successful accomplishment of these specific requirements.
