  • EUMETSAT Supporting Marine Earth Observation Applications (SMA) 2024

    SMA24 banner

    In early 2024 EUMETSAT will convene the next iteration of the “Supporting Marine Earth Observation Applications (SMA)” course, introducing you to our marine data catalogue and helping you develop workflows that support your own application-specific goals. If you wish to learn about, or work more extensively with, our ocean colour, sea surface temperature, altimetry, sea ice and/or wind data, then we encourage you to apply. This year, the course will be delivered in partnership with the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI). We particularly encourage applicants working in the mid- and high-latitudes, where AWI have extensive experience with both in situ and satellite oceanography.

    During this course you will learn how to independently access and process data from the EUMETSAT product catalogue for your marine workflows and applications. The focus will be on data streams from EUMETSAT Copernicus marine missions (Sentinel-3; Sentinel-6) and derived downstream products, those derived from Copernicus supporting missions, and those made available by the Ocean and Sea-Ice Satellite Application Facility (OSI SAF).

    Training will take place entirely online and through two phases, which will be support by experts in the relevant fields;

    • The first, self-paced phase will take place between 26 February and 15 March 2024 and will take approximately 9-15 hours in total to complete. It will involve self-paced flexible learning through webinars, forums and technical checks (particularly for software installations), documentation and assignments.

    • The second, virtual classroom phase will be take place between 18 March and 22 March 2024 using Zoom and other collaborative tools. This phase will be made up of interactive tutorials, live demos, group work, and 1:1 meetings. During this intensive week, which will require 5-8 hours of participation each day, we will focus on co-creating a mini-project directly relevant to your application of interest.

    During the course, you will;

    • Learn about the specifics of the marine products that EUMETSAT provides (variables, timeliness, resolution, data formats) Select appropriate products from the EUMETSAT marine catalogue and access them using GUI-based and automated services
    • Use relevant software tools, such as SNAP, and scripting languages, such as Python, to acquire, visualise and process Earth observation data from multiple sources
    • Work with trainers to design workflows around these products and tools, tailoring approaches to the specific needs of a participant-defined application

  • SEEMET 2024

    South Eastern Europe Meteorological training course SEEMET-2024 will be organized by the Federal Hydrometeorological Institute of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FHMZ) with the EUMETSAT, EUMETCAL, EUMeTrain and ECMWF support. The course will be focused on the use of satellite data in operational forecast, with special focus on MTG data and products. 

    The target audiences for the course are meteorological forecasters from the SE European countries. Since it is a Basic course it is designed for young or less experienced forecasters.

    The lessons are tailored to enhance following satellite skills for operational forecasters:
    Skill 1: Identify surface features in satellite images
    Skill 2: Identify cloud types and their characteristics
    Skill 3: Identify and interpret broad-scale, synoptic and mesoscale systems
    Skill 4: Identify and interpret atmospheric phenomena
    Skill 5: Interpret derived fields and derived products

    The course is expected to improve the skills of operational meteorologists, especially in the interpretation of satellite images and products, including the interpretation of MTG data.

    Workshop in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina: 22 - 26 April 2024

    Application deadline extended25 February 2024

    How to apply:

    Applications to this course are based on the nominations by the heads of the SE European NMHSs.

  • ESSL-EUMETSAT Testbeds on Severe Convective Storms in Preparation for MTG in 2024

    ESSL and EUMETSAT organise a series of testbeds to prepare forecasters from the EUMETSAT Member States for data from Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) and Metop Second Generation (Metop-SG) satellites. These testbeds are organized both to teach forecasting severe convective storms using state-of-the-art or even experimental forecasting tools, and to evaluate such tools. At these events forecasters will learn by doing, by making severe weather forecasts and nowcasts using a mix of new nowcasting and forecasting tools, followed by a verification. Particular focus will be given to the use of proxy-MTG satellite data (e.g., from the NASA MODIS, NOAA VIIRS and Sentinel-3/OLCI instruments) and, once operationally available, real data from MTG in order to prepare forecasters for the use of next-generation satellite data. In addition, a range of state-of-the-art nowcasting tools and numerical weather prediction-based guidance (i.e. from DWD, ZAMG, ESSL, and ECMWF) will be evaluated.

    Target group: Forecasters from the EUMETSAT Member States who train other forecasters and forecasters with a strong background in severe storms meteorology. A self-assessment test is available here

    Dates & locations:

    • 13-17 May 2024, ESSL Research and Training Centre (Wiener Neustadt, Austria)
