      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 EUMETSAT's satellite based climate monitoring products for operational climate monitoring and climate research.

      Workshop setup

      This is a blended training, composed of an online phase and a classroom phase.

      The online phase covers background information about the data, data formats and tools, that is needed to successfully work with satellite based climate information and specifically with the products that are subject of this course.

      The classroom phase in Riga will focus on practical exercises. Most of the time in Riga will be spend to work on mini projects. Participants are encouraged to define their own project during the online phase.

      This course will mainly focus on CM SAF data and free software tools (such R - see http://www.cmsaf.eu/tools/ for further information). During the workshop, the participants will have the opportunity to explore the use of CM SAF data in their daily work.

    • Operational Marine Forecasting using EUMETSAT's Copernicus Marine Data Stream, Lisbon, 2018

      The purpose of the event is to develop skills in using data from EUMETSAT's Copernicus Marine Data Stream for marine surface analysis to professionals with some previous experience. 

      We will focus on the application of data from Sentinel-3, Jason-3 and use of associated data such as EUMETSAT’s Scatterometers.

      Participants will be able to:

      • analyse  the current surface conditions using scatterometer and altimeter data;

      • monitor the evolution of the surface conditions;

      • integrate these satellite data with data from numerical models, validating the model output;

      • access and visualize the data;

      • identify how the use of the wide range of products available from  EUMETSAT, the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service and other Copernicus partners, can improve the quality of marine analysis.

      The course is primarily intended for experts from operational centers with responsibility of monitoring seas on the Atlantic coasts and Mediterranean Sea, with all levels of experience in the use of satellite data for marine analysis propose.

      This course will have two phases, an online phase and a classroom phase.
