Training projects

ePort is a product of EUMeTrain and NMHs in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Visualised data and products are available for training. It is also the basis for many regional weather dicussion training events.

Eumetcal is the training co-operation programme between the national hydro-meteorological services (NHMS) in Europe. Eumetcal gathers together meteorological training and subject matter experts around the world.

EUMeTrain is an international project dedicated to the development of training material and training methods for satellite meteorology.

The COMET Program’s mission is to serve as a premier resource that supports, enhances, and stimulates the communication and application of scientific knowledge of the atmospheric, and related sciences, for the operational and educational communities. The MetEd website provides free access to hundreds of hours of material available to the public.

SatManu (The manual of Synoptic Satellite Meteorology Conceptual Models and Case Studies)
Satmanu (The manual of Synoptic Satellite Meteorology Conceptual Models and Case Studies), is a collection of conceptual models and course modules demonstrating the usefulness of satellite meteorology computer-aided learning (CAL) tools. The conceptual modules show how the user can clearly interpret various features in a satellite image such as cold or warm fronts. EUMETSAT has produced several CAL modules

SATellite Animation and Interactive Display software. Software produced by JMA for display and interaction with near real-time, satellite, numerical weather prediction model data, observational data and radar data. The SATAID application, documentation and training manual can be downloaded, but registration is required.

The Virtual Institute for Satellite Integration Training from NOAA-NESDIS Cooperative Institutes, the National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service (NESDIS), and the National Weather Service (NWS). The purpose of VISIT is to transfer research results based on atmospheric remote sensing data into NWS operations.

Sources of satellite imagery from other organisations

Australian Bureau of Meteorology satellite images
The bureau uses data from Multi-functional Transport Satellites (MTSAT), a series of geostationary satellites operated by the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA. These types of imagery are available to the public: Infrared Images, Visible Images and Clouds/Surface Composite

NASA Earth Observatory
NASA Earth Observatory is an online publishing outlet for NASA. It is the principal source of satellite imagery and other scientific information aboutthe climate and the environment provided by NASA for public use.

Images from the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) on NOAA's KLM and N satellites and NASA's Aqua satellite.

MODIS Rapid Response System
MODIS (or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) is a key instrument aboard the Terra (EOS AM) and Aqua (EOS PM) satellites. You can view the latest MODIS imagery, as well as search an image collection going back to 2000.
