The purpose of this product tutorial is to give an overview on the recipes and the different types of sandwich products.
2-page RGB Quick Guides are published on SEVIRI standard RGB types to provide help for the forecasters and other experts to use the RGBs, to interpret properly their colours. NASA Sport RGB Guides are also included.
End of May, EUMeTrain is organising an Event Week on convection. Shortly before the main convective season starts, this event will focus on topics like thunderstorms, tornadoes, storm damage and the use of satellite products in one week. The target audience comprises meteorologists from all fields but especially forecasters, students and model developers.
One major point of emphasis will be on NWCSAF and H-SAF products and new developments in this field. But also the use of satellite and other remote sensing products for forecasting thunderstorms will be paramount. The access to the Event Week is free and open to all, however prior registration is needed. Self-registration is simple and you will be able to register for one or several sessions.
Registration links are available in the schedule.

EUMeTrain is preparing the 4th edition of the Marine Course. The course will be conducted online and in asynchronous mode. A Moodle platform will be used for this purpose. The course is primarily designed for marine forecasters, but other meteorologists are invited to participate.
The course aims to improve the quality of marine safety warnings and nowcasting in Europe through better use of satellite and model data. It will be run between March 26th and May 17th, 2019.
The 2019 course will cover the following topics:
The 4th EUMeTrain Marine Course will be supported by experts from KNMI, ECMWF, NOAA and EUMETSAT.
In the 2019 edition, students will be offered the possibility to attend a 1-week follow up classroom course in Lisbon organized jointly by EUMETSAT and IPMA (Portuguese Institute for the Sea and the Atmosphere), tentatively scheduled for 24 to 28 June 2019 and 2 to 6 December 2019.
