The Baltic+ course is a joint initiative of the National Meteorological Services of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland, who join the forces in order to increase the knowledge in skills in the use of satellite observation data and to create a platform for exchanging ideas, applications and knowledge.
This is a blended course, composed of a 3 weeks online phase and a 3 days face-to-face phase. The online phase will occur from 23 March to 10 April 2020 and is mandatory for classroom participation. The classroom phase will deepen the topics discussed during the online phase.
The online (asynchronous) component will include reading materials, exercises and collaborative case study preparatory work. This will take three weeks, including approximately 4 hours of individual work per week. The course will finish with a three-day-classroom course that will consist of exercises, presentations, group work and finalisation of case studies started during the online phase.
The course is primarily aimed at weather forecasters working in shifts with at least six months professional experience.
