2nd announcement: Synoptic and Mesoscale Analysis of Satellite Images - 2014
We would like to recall that registration to the EUMeTrain - Eumetcal course on Synoptic and Mesoscale Analysis of Satellite Images is open until 10 July.
The EUMeTrain - Eumetcal course on Synoptic and Mesoscale Analysis of Satellite Meteorology will teach you how to operationally parse a satellite image into conceptual models. Analysing a satellite image in terms of conceptual models is the best way to learn to retrieve a 3D or even a 4D (with time being the fourth dimension) mental weather picture.
Starting on 25th September 2014 with the distance learning phase, the conceptual models described in the Satellite Manual of Synoptic Meteorology (SatManu) will be taught to the students. From 24 – 28 November 2014 the classroom phase will take place in Langen (Germany) where several case studies will be analysed and discussed by the students. You will find more information in the course description here attached.
The course is designed for operational forecasters and meets the requirements of the WMO. During several stages of the course, the students will be tested through online questionnaires. In case of a successful completion of the tests and online presence during the lectures a certificate will be handed out.
A description sheet of the course (also for printing) can be downloaded HERE.
A more detailed description of the course, including the tentative agenda and also the option to register for individual online lecture webinars, is available in the EUMeTrain website at http://www.eumetrain.org/courses/synoptic_course_2014.html .
