11 – 15 September 2017 / Thessaloniki, Greece
For a fifth time in a row, the autumn school will be held in Perea, close to Thessaloniki, Greece.
The main topic will be nowcasting — informing about the state of the atmosphere foreseen for the next hours — and how satellites can help in that task. The participants are currently being selected from among those countries invited to participate, usually the Eastern Mediterranean, Egypt, Tunisia, the Balkans, Malta and, of course, Greece, which supplies students from the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki and from the Greek national meteorological service.
This year the presenters will come from Bulgaria, Austria and several SAFs. It is expected that the quiet Mediterranean provides a time for reflection and discussion on how to improve professional skills, which might have turned into unreflected routines. Usually many novel ideas are put forward in the presentation and coffee times. Most of the organisation is run by Prof. Haralambos Feidas from Aristotle University.
