This document summarises the use in data assimilation and verification of in situ surface observations at ECMWF, with a focus on data quality monitoring aspects. The discussion includes observations received via the GTS, high-density observations from Member and Co-operating States, and highlights opportunities and challenges associated with citizen observations and other non-standard datasets.
