26 September – 7 October / Antigua-Guatemala
A new course on tropical meteorology based on satellite imagery will take place in Antigua, at the site of the AECID training centre. AECID is the Cooperation agency of the Spanish government. AEMET supplies most of the experts on tropical meteorology and oceanography. INPE in Brazil contributes to the event, with lectures on applications of the solar channels on satellites like GOES or Meteosat. In the past 12 editions, more than 300 meteorologists have participated and practiced the data processing from their satellite source.
