This product tutorial introduces the concept of total precipitable water and shows synoptic applications of TWP products.
In this module you will learn how snow cover and snow water equivalent are determined by satellite instruments and how this data can be applied for regional climate studies.
The purpose of this tutorial is to help the reader understand and use the SEVIRI Physical Retrieval (SPhR) product. SPhR's purpose is to provide information on convective environmental parameters, particularly on moisture content and atmospheric instability.
20, 27 April & 7 May 2015 / online
Free and open access will be granted to a series of 45-minute online sessions focusing on planning and delivering training sessions.
> Monday 20 April -- 12:00 UTC: Planning training sessions, what information do you need?
(Ivan Smiljanic - EUMeTrain; Maja Kuna - EUMETSAT)
> Monday 27 April -- 12:00 UTC: How do you make training sessions more active?
(Vesa Nietosvaara-EUMETSAT; Luciane Veeck - VLab)
> Thursday 7 May -- 9:00 UTC: Creating effective presentations.

This event is being organised as part of this year’s WMO/EUMETCAL Course for Trainers. You can register to a particular session above by clicking on the title of the session.
From 8 to 12 June 2015, EUMeTrain organizes an event week on convection. During this week new remote sensing developements in the area of forecasting and/or analysing convective weather situations will be presented. Furthermore actual and/or past convective events will be analysed and discussed. Altogether this event week will give you an interesting insight into the world of convection – from the scientific and application-oriented point of view.
