This page serves as an introduction page for the MTG proxy data, case studies, general MTG info and training material. Its purpose is to disseminate basic knowledge on the new satellite that will be in use in the next 2 years.
The next generation of satellites will consist of two types of satellites, one imager and one sounder satellite, a novelty that should greatly help forecasters in analyzing the state of the atmosphere by providing radiosounding measurements through the atmosphere every couple of hours.
The new imager should also provide new possibilites with its new channels and consequently the possibility to create new RGB products, e.g. Cloud Type and Cloud Phase RGBs.
There will be a two months long break for the summer and the meetings will continue on from September.
The next online meeting for trainers on different topics connected to MTG will be held on:
7 September at 12:00 UTC
