On October 1st, 2018, CMADS leaders, Prof. Wang Hao (Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering), and Prof. Meng Xianyong (Research Associate at the University of Hong Kong), were invited for an interview with China Central Television (CCTV). During the interview, Prof. Wang Hao and Prof. Meng Xianyong expressed that since the release of CMADS in recent years, it has received positive feedback from numerous countries and institutions worldwide. China is currently conducting its second pollution source census to assess the quantity and impact of agricultural pollutants in the water system. CMADS has been chosen as the primary driving data for the second national pollution source census project by China's Ministry of Environmental Protection.

    Prof. Wang Hao believes that data from various sources each have their strengths, and the key lies in integrating them effectively. By employing multivariate data assimilation, it's possible to account for the unique error characteristics and strengths of different data sources. CMADS utilizes data assimilation and big data technology, effectively addressing the shortage of meteorological data across East Asia.

   Prof. Meng, the developer of CMADS, believes that the widespread recognition of CMADS is due to its consistent specification (latitude, longitude, elevation) across East Asia. Additionally, CMADS assimilates data from numerous sources and is freely accessible to the public, enabling broader participation. If all researchers utilized the same meteorological input data, ensuring its quality and timeliness, their findings would be comparable, rather than being based on guesswork or subjective interpretations.
