The Marine Forecasting Course is a distance learning course designed to train forecasters to improve the quality of marine forecasting and nowcasting through the better use of satellite and model data. The course is a joint project from EUMeTrain, EUMETSAT and EUMETCAL with the goal of preparing forecasters in the core skills related to marine nowcast and forecasts
This on-line training course will focus on the analysis of the current state of sea surface and atmosphere, trough remote sensing observations, and combine with model outputs. The use of physical and dynamical reasoning (including conceptual models) is also presented to provide statements about the evolution of the atmosphere and sea surface as it affects the short term ocean forecast.
