This satellite applications course in English language is suitable for forecasters in Africa, independent of their work experience. The course will consist of live sessions and discussions between more and less experienced forecasters. The focus is on basic interpretation of satellite images in weather rooms and in using widely available satellite products to get a better understanding of the daily weather. We will use the COMET MetEd Basic Satellite Imagery Interpretation Lesson to guide us through the basic use of satellite images.
As a participant, you will develop professional relationships with other course participants, get connected to satellite professionals ready to help you to understand the basic satellite products and to become a proficient user of satellite products in your daily work.
A successful completion of this course will make you better prepared for advanced level courses offered by the African training centres and EUMETSAT for African users.
The duration of this course is three weeks. The participants should reserve minimum 4 hours each week for going through the learning resources, attending the live meetings and completing assignments.
