      The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki will organize in cooperation with EUMETSAT the 6th Autumn School on the “Use of Satellite Data and Products for Severe Weather Nowcasting”, which will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece. The main objective of the training workshop is to present and explain to the participants the new developments in satellite meteorology focusing on the use of processes, principles and practices, tools and products for nowcasting and short-range forecasting severe weather such as storms, deep cyclones, severe precipitation, heat waves and droughts, based on meteorological satellite data.

       

      Date: 24 - 28 September 2018

      Location: Thessaloniki, Greece

      Application Deadline: 9 July 2018

      The call is intended to invited countries only!

      Only one participant from each country will be accepted to attend the workshop. Meteorological Services and Offices are kindly requested to nominate a candidate.

    • Marine Forecasting Workshop in Pretoria, South Africa from 3 to 7 December 2018

      The objectives of this course are to develop your skill in using data from EUMETSAT's Copernicus Marine Data Stream for surface analysis. We focus on the application of scatterometer data and data from Jason-3 and Sentinel-3

      At the end of the course you will be able to:

      1. analyse  the current surface conditions using scatterometer and altimeter data 
      2. monitor the evolution of the surface conditions 
      3. be able to integrate these satellite data with data from numerical models, validating the model output
      4. be able to access and visualise the data 
      5. be aware of the wide range of products available from  EUMETSAT, the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service and other Copernicus partners 

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

      Online Phase: 3-21 September 2018

      On site, Pretoria (South Africa): 3 - 7 December 2018

    • Workshop on the Use of Gridded Satellite Data for Climate Services in Africa, Pretoria, South Africa 2018

      The key objective of this Workshop is to instruct scientific staff from National Meteorological Services, Regional Climate Centers, and from research institutions in the use of satellite based products for operational climate monitoring and climate research.

      Workshop setup

      Participants will complete an online phase during which they will

      • engage with the concept of satellite based climate monitoring
      • be introduced to EUMETSAT's climate products
      • install free and open software tools to be used during the classroom phase
      • get a first introduction to these software
      • design a small project that will be completed during the workshop in Pretoria
      • identify which data will be most applicable to their work and ideally download (some of) these data

      The Pretoria workshop offered by EUMETSAT and will focus on project-based work with supporting presentations and group work on the application of satellite data to climate monitoring. We will use climate data of EUMETSAT's product portfolio (mainly CM SAF data) and free software tools (R - see http://www.cmsaf.eu/tools/ for further information; and R-Instat). During the workshop, the participants will have the opportunity to explore the use of satellite based climate data in their daily work.

      Please note: The active participation in the online phase is crucial for your success in the course!

      Online Phase: 30 July - 10 August 2018

      Workshop in Pretoria, South Africa: 20 - 24 August 2018

    • Cours des Applications Météorologiques Satellitaires 2018

      Par invitation

      En coopération avec le centre d'excellence de  Casablanca (laboratoire virtuel de la formation satellitaire de l’OMM), l'Organisation Européenne pour l'Exploitation de Satellites Météorologiques (EUMETSAT) organise une  formation au profit des utilisateurs de la communauté météorologique africaine. Le cours sera dédié pour des participants francophones.

      Ce cours se passera en deux phases, une phase en ligne et une phase  en classe.

      En ligne: 1-22 octobre 2018. 

      En présentiel: 10-14 décembre 2018 à Casablanca, Maroc.

      L'objectif  de cette formation  sur les applications satellitaires est d'optimiser l'utilisation des données des satellites météorologiques et d'accroître les connaissances et les compétences des  participants en météorologie satellitaire , contribuant ainsi à l'amélioration des prévisions.

      Les candidats doivent être soit des instructeurs en météorologie satellitaire, soit des prévisionnistes opérationnels ou au moins des utilisateurs expérimentés des données satellitaires, avec la capacité de transmettre les compétences acquises au cours à d'autres membres du personnel opérationnel.

    • Copernicus and GMES Africa expert exchange workshop: Development of a road map for collaborative training using Sentinel 3 marine data

      This event aims to provide a forum for exchange of knowledge and practice between those involved in marine satellite data training from the EUMETSAT Copernicus marine training service, and representatives of the GMES Africa consortia.

      The outcomes of this workshop will include:

      • Determination of requirements for future training resource development and potential for collaborative events as regards GMES&Africa Marine (to be compiled as a roadmap report subsequent to the workshop).
      • Sharing the training approach and resources developed so far as part of the EUMETSAT Copernicus marine and ocean training service. This will include discussion of online learning and tools such as SNAP, Python, and hosted processing environments.
      • Networking between key personnel from the 4 consortia with a marine and coastal area remit under GMES Africa
