METAR stands for Meteorological Aerodrome Report and is a standardized format for reporting weather information. METARs are collected and distributed using Automated Surface Observing Systems (ASOS) which combines data from the National Weather Service (NWS), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the Department of Defense (DOD). Airport weather information is critical during emergencies when a communications disruption may make both passenger and cargo air travel riskier. Hams should be familiar with obtaining and reporting information on local infrastructure for EMCOMM.
