    With the WMO/VLab Centres of Excellence in training on satellite meteorology, the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) will organize an online training course for the benefit of the African meteorological user community.  The 2021 course will be conducted exclusively online, with facilitators adjusting the delivery method and the assessment methods and tools to continue to engage with participants and to effectively teach satellite applications and skills The online course will take place from 17 May to 11 June 2021 

    This satellite applications course will help the participants to improve participants' skills in identifying key weather systems and features found in Africa and their characteristics in satellite imagery and products. They will develop professional relationships with course participants and use of a variety of web and mobile-based applications for communication and learning together.  

    Candidates should be instructors in satellite meteorology, operational forecasters or advanced satellite data users, with the ability to pass on skills acquired at the course to other operational staff. 

    The course is intended for participants from Africa, with a priority given for the participants nominated by their Permanent Representatives with WMO.   

    Application deadline: 2 May 2021 

    Approved participants will be notified by email by 6 May 2021

    En coopération avec les centres d'excellence (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. 

    Le cours 2021 sera dispensé exclusivement en ligne, les animateurs ajustant la méthode de prestation et les méthodes et outils d'évaluation afin de continuer à s'engager auprès des participants et à enseigner efficacement les applications et compétences satellitaires.   Le cours en ligne se déroulera du 17 mai au 11 juin 2021. Ce cours sur les applications satellitaires vous aidera à améliorer vos compétences en matière d'identification des phénomènes et systèmes météorologiques clés que l'on trouve en Afrique et de leurs caractéristiques dans les images et produits satellitaires. Vous développerez des relations professionnelles avec les participants au cours et explorerez l'utilisation d'une variété d'applications web et mobiles pour communiquer et apprendre ensemble.   

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

    Le cours est destiné aux participants d'Afrique 

    Date limite de dépôt des candidatures : 2 mai 2021

      • The Fourth ACAM Training School will be focused on Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosols in the Asian Monsoon region using Satellite and Model data. The school is fully on-line and has the goal to enhance the capacity of early career scientists in the areas of atmospheric composition data analysis using satellite remote sensing, model and analysis products. The training school will provide lectures and tutorials on using the latest and comprehensive global datasets on atmospheric composition.

        The school will have 3 sessions of 2h30 for the weeks from 21 June to  2 July 2021 and is limited to 30 participants to allow a hands-on approach. Priority goes to PhD and master-level students from Asian countries.

        Participants will also develop small-scale science projects to apply these datasets in their area of research interests. Junior and advanced researchers working in academy and public/private services as well as candidates from other continents are invited to apply but will be considered based on availability.

         A basic knowledge in programming and understanding in structure and formats of geospatial data / Earth Observation data would be advantageous but is NOT mandatory.

        Course dates: 21 June - 2nd July 2021
        Application Deadline: 14 May 2021
