Description:
COVID-19/SARS-2: we are currently evaluation the options in relation to COVID-19 and its impacts to the face-to-face course. Further information will be provided as soon as they become available. If the face-to-face event does not go ahead, we shall try and meet as many of the objectives as possible through an online event, so keep the time free! This is follow-up event for online Marine Weather Forecasting Course. Selected participants from online phase will be invited to this classroom phase, to be held in Pretoria, 22-26 June 2020. The course organised in partnership by NOAA and EUMETSAT will focus on the application of satellite data (scatterometer, altimeter and RGB products) to marine wind and wave forecasting. The objective of the course is to equip marine forecasters and trainers in marine meteorology with the knowledge and skills to use wind and wave data in their forecasting or training. The secondary purpose of the course is to better understand the operational realities of marine forecasters in Africa, what training needs there are and the regional capacities to meet those needs.
