The Manual of Synoptic Satellite Meteorology and the MSG interpretation Guide are two examples of online textbooks developed and maintained within the EUMeTrain project.
In 1996, the compilation of a "Manual of Synoptic Satellite Meteorology - Conceptual Models" (or short SatManu) was started, initially by the Austrian Meteorological Institute (ZAMG), but later in co-operation with the Dutch- and Finnish Meteorological Institutes (KNMI and FMI, resp.). The material in this manual was produced in electronic form as a CD-ROM within the framework of the sponsored "SATREP" Project of EUMETSAT and is also available online. This type of Computer Aided Learning-material is now widely used as part of EUMETSAT training courses in satellite meteorology, in the training and operational environments of several Member and Co-operating States and by many other meteorological services and research institutes such as Universities world-wide.
The different channels and the wide range of applications that Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) offer are described in a series of powerpoints with contribution from EUMETSAT and the various European National Meteorological Services.
