The project team consists of three motivated scientists, each of them with more than 5 years of work experience at the Bulgarian National Weather Service and with a pronounced interest in the research and operational activities of the national meteorological service. This team has recognized scientific potential and experience within different fields covering entirely the topics of the proposed project. Joining the experience, knowledge, and interests of these scientists creates a team with experience in time-series analysis, remote sensing methods for meteorological observations, climatological and meteorological research, studies within boundary-layer meteorology, mesoscale modelling, mathematics, informatics, statistics, use of numerical methods and software products – all ensuring the necessary competence for successful accomplishment of this project.
