From 8 - 12 September 2014, EUMeTrain organizes an event week on high impact weather. This event week will focus on weather related natural disasters caused by strong winds, extreme temperatures or high precipitation amounts. To obtain a better predictability of high impact weather, it is important to understand the physical/meteorological processes causing them. This event week offers online presentations from meteorologists involved in the prediction of extreme weather situations.
After the first course on satellite meteorology in 2014 dedicated to the basics of satellite meteorology and satellite interpretation EUMeTrain-EUMETCAL offers a second course that will run October/November 2014.
This course (October/November 2014) will combine online lectures with a one week classroom phase in Langen (Germany). It will concentrate on synoptic image analysis. Participants will learn how to classify cloud systems and images features seen in satellite images into conceptual models. Practical work under the guidance of experienced forecasters will be the goal of the classroom phase in the second half of the year.
A course fee of 500 Euro will be demanded for participants attending the classroom session. Nevertheless, there will be a limitation in the number of course participants to 20.
