**Satellite Applications Workshop for RA-III 2020 – Broadcast live via YouTube**
There will be a live broadcast of the workshop through the FIMCM-ESPOL (Facultad de Ingeniería Marítima y Ciencias del Mar FIMCM de la Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral ESPOL) channel (in Spanish). https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDpQ0qbY6YvsMZjUh0ssqZw
Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral (ESPOL) and the Instituto Nacional de Meteorología e Hidrología (INAMHI) in Ecuador are hosting a virtual satellite workshop in Spanish for participants from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) South America Region III in November 2020. The training will be on Tuesday, November 10th, Thursday 12th, and Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday November 17, 18 and 19. The workshop will cover both GOES-R and JPSS satellite capabilities and data access to support AmeriGEO Societal Benefit Areas (SBA’s) and the WMO’s Region III forecast challenges. This is a Spanish language only event with no simultaneous interpretation available.
*A parallel workshop was held for WMO RA-IV in October 2020. More information can be found here:
It is strongly recommended that participants complete the following online modules in advance to prepare for the workshop:
*Please note it is required to register in COMET for some of the modules. Only three modules are suggested. The Spanish titles of these modules are: – GOES-R: beneficios de la observación ambiental de próxima generación – El ABI del GOES-R: la próxima generación de imágenes satelitales – El GLM del GOES-R: introducción al sensor de rayos geoestacionario
Only four modules are suggested. The Spanish titles of these modules are: – Introducción a la teledetección por microondas – Bandas de absorción del oxígeno y del vapor de agua – Emisividad superficial de microondas- Influencia de las nubes y la precipitación
By the end of the workshop, participants will have a general working knowledge of the GOES-R Series and JPSS key instruments as well as develop competency in working with the data and products for weather forecasting, prediction, monitoring or research through hands-on exercises and case studies. A certificate of participation will be provided to participants actively engaged in all sessions.
