EUMETSAT METEOROLOGICAL SATELLITE CONFERENCE 2018

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.

The 2018 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference took place in Tallinn, Estonia, from 17 to 21 September 2018. EUMETSAT were joined in the organisation and hosting of the event by the Estonian Environment Agency, the national provider for weather and climate services in Estonia.

The conference date coincided with the celebration of the Centenary of the Republic of Estonia.

EUMETSAT has organised a meteorological satellite conference every year for over thirty years. During that time, the conference has become a key annual event for the meteorological and scientific communities where participants from around the world can meet to share their experience and knowledge during plenary, poster and workshop sessions.

The 2018 conference discussed such topics as preparing for MTG and EPS-SG, atmospheric chemistry monitoring and applications, and climate and ocean monitoring. The conference location also lends itself to discussions on the topics of observations for the Baltic Basin, as well as Arctic monitoring and applications.

Further conference topics incorporated developments in current and future meteorological satellite programmes, data access and nowcasting and high-resolution NWP.
