EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference 2017

The EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference is a forum that brings together meteorologists, scientists and researchers from around the world to share their experience and knowledge

EUMETSAT, the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites and its co-host ITAF-MET (Italian Air Force - Operational Force Command, Department for Meteorology (ReMet)), the national provider for weather and climate services in Italy, were pleased to welcome experts in the field of meteorology, climatology and monitoring of the environment to the 2017 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference, that took place at the Roman film studios “Cinecittà Studios” in Rome.

The EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference is a forum that brings together meteorologists, scientists and researchers from around the world to share their experience and knowledge during plenary, poster and workshop sessions. In addition to the perennial cornerstone themes of weather, ocean and climate observations, the 2017 conference offered an excellent opportunity to discuss how satellite data can support operational hydrology and water resources management.

This considered the utilisation of the precipitation, soil moisture and snow products delivered by the H-SAF, which is led by the Italian Air Force-Meteorological Service (ITAF-MET).

The conference also looked at the use of satellite data in very high-resolution numerical weather prediction (NWP) models and at the preparation for the next generation of geostationary satellites, including MTG.
