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.
The next online meeting for trainers on different topics connected to MTG will be held on:
4 May at 13:00 UTC
Note:The meeting in April will be held face to face by the EUMeTrain members in Finland during the regular consortium meeting.
Due to the pandemic situation the world is currently in, all face-to-face training events have been postponed/cancelled and so was the case with the Bracciano summer school. More information about it will follow in the coming months.
