New training opportunity: RA-I Basic Satellite Imagery Interpretation Course 2023
The online course on Basic Satellite Imagery Interpretation will take place 15 May – 2 June 2023. It is offered both in English and French language, by the ASMET instructors from DGM Morocco, EAMAC Niger, EUMETSAT, IMTR Kenya and SAWS South Africa. This course helps you to improve skills in using basic, generally available satellite imagery for identifying various weather and surface features in Africa. The course is suitable for all forecasters in Africa, both early career operational forecasters and more experienced meteorologists.
The course will consist of live sessions with discussions and weather briefings, with the focus on basic interpretation of satellite images used in weather rooms. The participants should reserve minimum 4 hours each week for going through the learning resources, attending the live meetings and completing assignments. We will use the COMET MetEd Basic Satellite Imagery Interpretation Lesson to guide us through the basic use of satellite images.
