Information about EUMeTrain
EUMeTrain is EUMETSAT's largest international training project for the development of training material and training support in the field of satellite meteorology.
The project responds to training requirements expressed over the years by European national meteorological services, trainers and operational forecasters. The main goal of EUMeTrain is to provide the users of EUMETSAT satellite data and products with training resources, assisting the effective use of satellite data, either as stand-alone material or in combination with other meteorological data sources.
The project team consists of the national meteorological services of Croatia (DHMZ), Finland (FMI), Germany (DWD), Portugal (IPMA) and Hungary (OMSZ), led by Austria (ZAMG).
What can you find on EUMeTrain?
The training material provided by EUMeTrain complements EUMETSAT satellite programs with special emphasis on high impact weather. Training material on the use of satellite data in support of climate monitoring, land surface, ocean and hydrological applications are also addressed.
The library of resources consists of training modules, case studies, guides and a series of lectures. A collection of user manuals and simulators invites users to interactively engage with satellite data. A monthly online weather briefing is organised for users, as well as Event weeks in which meteorological topics are discussed by experts. Training courses on Satellite Meteorology for forecasters in Europe are regularly offered to the community in either an online, blended or in person format.
