25 Feb – 1 March 2019 / IMGW-BIP, Krakow, Poland
For the first time, the SAFs on Climate Monitoring, Land Surface Applications and Atmospheric Composition, collaborated to provide the 2019 EUMETSAT Winter School on the Use for Satellite Data for Climate Applications.
The classroom phase followed a two week online phase, which prepared participants for the practical work during the classroom phase. Participants explored climate data records from the three SAFs, such as Solar Radiation, Sunshine Duration, Land Surface Temperature, Vegetation Indices, Evaportranspiration, and NO2 concentration, while working on mini projects. In addition to the data, different software tools, such as the CM SAF R Toolbox and R Instat, were explored to compare station data with satellite information and to analyse the provided time series in time and space.
