    • Atelier de prévision maritime utilisant les données altimétriques et diffusiométriques à Casablanca, Maroc, 2017

      Cet événement vise à développer des compétences dans l'utilisation des données du flux de données maritimes satellitaires d'EUMETSAT, pour l'analyse de la surface maritime et est destiné à des professionnels possédant une expérience antérieure.

      Nous nous concentrerons sur l'application des données de Sentinelle-3, Jason-3 et sur l'utilisation de données associées telles que celles Diffusiomètres d’EUMETSAT.

      Les participants pourront:

      • analyser les conditions de surface actuelles à l'aide des données des Altimètres et Diffusiomètres;
      • surveiller l'évolution des conditions de surface;
      • intégrer ces données satellitaires avec les données issues de modèles numériques, pour la validation des sorties du modèle;
      • accéder aux données et les visualiser;

      • déterminer comment l'utilisation de la vaste gamme de produits disponibles auprès d'EUMETSAT peut améliorer la qualité de l'analyse maritime.

      Ce cours se déroulera sous la forme d'un atelier, avec des séances pratiques, ainsi que des présentations sur la manière d'utiliser efficacement les données. Avant le cours, il est recommandé que tous les participants complètent le module MetEd «Utilisation des estimations de vent par diffusiomètre et de hauteur de vague par altimètre dans les prévisions maritimes» disponible en anglais à l'adresse suivante: https://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_module.php?id=1093#.WTfgnuuGO70

      Le cours est également disponible en français à: https://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_module.php?id=1256#.WTfg--uGO70

    • Workshop on the Use of Gridded Satellite Data for Climate Services in Africa, Pretoria, South Africa, 2017

      The key objective of this Workshop is to instruct active and future users from National Meteorological Services and from research institutions in the use of CM SAF products for operational climate monitoring and climate research.

      Workshop setup

      Participants will complete an online phase during which they will design a small project that will be completed during the workshop in Pretoria. During the online phase they will identify which data will be most applicable to their work.

      The Pretoria workshop is joinly offered by EUMETSAT and CM SAF and will include project-based work with supporting presentations and group work on the application of satellite data to climate monitoring. We will mainly use CM SAF data and free software tools (such as climate data operators (cdo) and R - see http://www.cmsaf.eu/tools/ for further information; and potentially QGIS). During the workshop, the participants will have the opportunity to explore the use of CM SAF data in their daily work.

      Online Phase: 23 October - 3 November 2017

      Workshop in Pretoria, South Africa: 20 - 24 November 2017

      Application deadline: 18 August 2017 (Applications open)
