Basic Satellite Course: Identify surface features


The course aims to give an overview on the basics of satellite meteorology: image analysis i.e. the interpretation of patterns in satellite images that are related to various meteorological phenomena. The course is asynchronous, which means that you can take it at your own pace as all the lectures are pre-prepared.

Quizzes are made for you to check your level of understanding.

In this module you will be able to identify geographical features and surface characteristics and conditions through images and satellite products. Although surface features are not the main purpose of meteorological forecasting, being able to identify and distinguish them from atmospheric features can be useful.
