Announcing the First MSC Introductory Radar Course

The Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) is delivering the 1st MSC Introductory Radar Course running from January 20 to April 22, 2010.

The goal of the course is to extend the use of weather radar so that its full capabilities can be applied to the weather problem of the day. It will also create a baseline from which further advanced radar training will begin.

The course is addressed to operational meteorologists from across Canada and Europe (Eumetcal member organizations).

Course Format

This is a blended learning course combining self-study material, on-line lectures, and a classroom phase. Students will be expected to attend 11 weekly on-line lectures (about an hour long), complete off-line assignments, and a case study in which radar applications play a key role.
The classroom phase will take place from April 19 to 22, 2010 in the Edmonton MOIP classroom and will cover applications of what the students learned through their self-study and on-line lectures using canned and real-time data.

For eventual participants from Europe it is not mandatory to attend the classroom phase in Edmonton.


Application CLOSED


No tuition will be charged
