    • The purpose of this EUMETSAT Copernicus Marine Data Stream (CMDS) training course is to share knowledge, skills, resources and code so attendees are able to independently access and apply Data of EUMETSATs Copernicus Marine Data Stream for their marine work-flows and applications.

      Target Audience:
      This training is aimed at those working in the operational marine sector and government agencies who are interested in working with satellite-based ocean observation data for marine applications. It would be beneficial for participants to have introductory experience using SNAP and/or a scripting language such as Python (or similar), but this is not a prerequisite. Please note that this course is aimed primarily at European audiences and participants from Copernicus programme member states.

      Outline of course:

      This is a blended course that will be presented through two phases. The first will be a week of asynchronous, self-paced learning with educational resources provided through an online platform called Moodle. To work through these resources, attendees will require 1-2 hours of self-paced learning each day.

      The second phase will consist of live 2-hour demonstration sessions run daily for 2 weeks, to take attendees through the Moodle content. These ‘espresso sessions’ are optional for attendance, and will cover FAQs including SNAP and python demos, background and technical sessions, and questions and answer sessions for tailored 1:1 interaction. These sessions are also designed to help attendees tune CMDS approaches and dataflows to their unique operational projects and responsibilities

      After the course participants will have the skills to:
      • Understand what data and products the Copernicus Marine Data Stream provides (variables, timeliness, resolution, data formats);
      • Select from the Copernicus Marine Data Stream appropriate products for specific tasks;
      • Access / download data and products provided in the Copernicus Marine Data Stream;
      • Know how to work with CMDS data in SNAP, GIS, and Python (Jupyter Notebooks);
      • Use data / products from the Copernicus Marine Data Stream for your own purposes.

      Self-Paced Online Phase:      19th - 23rd of April  2021
      Online Espresso Sessions:    26th April - 7th May 2021

      Application Deadline: 12th March 2021
      Applicants will be informed by the 19th of March if they have been selected. Please note that these courses are often highly subscribed to, and places are limited.

      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
