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.
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 will focus on the project 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
