Successful Climate Winter School

The new Winter School on the Use of Satellite Data for Climate Services was deemed a success by all involved.

Winter School on the Use of Satellite Data for Climate Services

The blended workshop, held online (28 Jan–8 Feb) and in Krakow, Poland (25 Feb–1 March) was the first time three Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs) have joined to support a EUMETSAT workshop. Representatives of the Atmospheric Composition (AC) SAF, Climate Monitoring (CM) SAF and Land Surface Analysis (LSA) SAF worked with EUMETSAT trainers to introduce participants to SAF data and tools.

This review of the winter school by the CM SAF details the work involved and how useful it was to the participants.

EUMETSAT trainer Christine Träger-Chatterjee said:"Although the CM SAF has been providing training for 10 years, this was the first time all three SAFs joined together to provide training. They all agreed it was a success — not only for the students, but also for them as data providers, to get feedback about their data and how it is provided. Participants from various NMHSs gave constructive feedback on how to improve the data access for them."
