The key objective of this workshop is to instruct active and future users from National Meteorological Services and research institutions in the use of CM SAF products for operational climate monitoring and climate research.
During the a two-week online phase, prior to the workshop, participants will be introduced to the concept of satellite-based climate monitoring and will be asked to design a mini project which they will be working on during the classroom phase.
The projects will be finalised during the workshop in Riga (14–18 May, 2018), with the aim of exploring satellite-based climate monitoring data and familiarising themselves with different software tools. This will also include supporting presentations and group work on the application of satellite to climate monitoring. During the workshop, the participants will have the opportunity to explore the use of CM SAF data in their daily work.
