FOG DETECTION WITH MSG IMAGES. Presentation by Jochen Kerkmann, EUMETSAT.
Date: Tuesday 20 April 2010 at 0650 UTC. Duration 45 minutes.
ASH DETECTION WITH MSG IMAGES. Presentation by Jochen Kerkmann, EUMETSAT.
Date: Tuesday 20 April 2010 at 1100-1145 UTC. Duration 45 minutes.
ANALYSIS, OBSERVATIONS AND INITIAL ERRORS. Presentation by Guðrún Nína Petersen, Icelandic Meteorological Institute.
Numerical weather prediction models are initialized from analyses. But what is an analysis exactly and how is it constructed?
Forecasting errors can be divided into initial errors and model errors. What are the reasons for initial errors?
These and other questions regarding analysis will be discussed.
Date: Tuesday 20 April 2010 at 1300-1400 UTC. Duration 60 minutes.
POTENTIAL VORTICITY IN WEATHER FORECASTING. Presentation by Bjørn Røsting, met.no. - CANCELLED DUE TO TRAVEL CHANGES.
Date: Wednesday 21 April 2010 at 0745-0830 UTC.
OROGRAPHIC FLOW. Presentation by Guðrún Nína Petersen, Icelandic Meteorological Institute.
We discuss orographic flows in complex terrain.
The key parameters for flow over and around mountains are introduced as well as examples of different flow regimes. There will be a few exercises during the lecture.
Date: Wednesday 21 April 2010 at 1200-1245 UTC. Duration 45 minutes.
NWP MODELS AND RESOLUTION . Presentation by David Schultz, FMI.
Followed by David, the recording contains also SATREP Online weather briefing by Nuno Moreira
A growing number of countries are running convection-allowing models (NWP models with horizontal grid spacings of 1-4 km). However, forecasters wishing to use these models as guidance in producing a forecast must adopt a new strategy.
This talk discusses some of the key research results that will affect how forecasters and researchers can incorporate convection-allowing model output into their toolbox.
Date: Thursday 22 April 2010 0745-0845 UTC. Duration 60 minutes.
“The hottest new celebrity” Bonus presentation from Iceland. Presentation by Guðrún Nína Petersen, Icelandic Meteorological Institute.
Tuesday night last week Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland erupted. This was just about a day after an eruption on the same mountain range had ceased.
That had been a "tourist eruption" with lava flowing in a safe area and no immediate danger to farming land, houses, people or animals.
The second eruption was of a different kind sending quite a lot of ash up into higher levels as well as down over farmlands. Although this is a relatively small eruption it has had great impact on the lives of many people due to the ash stopping air traffic. I’ll try to give a short overview of the eruption from a local standpoint and if we have time answer some questions.
Date: Thursday 22 April 2010 at 1045 UTC. Duration appr. 20 minutes.
