  • Marine Weather Forecasting

    Webinar with Carla Barroso and Ivan Smiljanic (EUMETSAT)

    8 June 2022, 12:00 UTC; Register here

    Satellite data products are relevant tools for monitoring marine weather and sea state conditions, as situ observations over ocean are scarce. Without satellite data, in essence, marine forecasters are left to rely solely on model data. In this course, you will learn through practical examples how to better assess current sea and marine weather conditions, and the accuracy of NWP forecasts, with the aid of scatterometer and altimeter data.
