Satelite Training in Latin America

Vilma Castro,

Professor at the School of Physics,

University of Costa Rica

WMO Regional Meteorological Training Center



1995 wmo regional training seminar on satellite meteorology l.jpg
1995 WMO Regional Training Seminar on Satellite Meteorology University of Costa Rica

  • Coordinated by Dr. Donald Hinsman, from WMO

  • With lecturers from the RMTC, NOAA, EUMETSAT

  • Among them: Drs Jim Purdom and Roger Weldon


Slide4 l.jpg

The rule in most of the participants countries: University of Costa Rica low resolution imagery, one or two pictures a day in ugly thermal paper. Few countries had displays in a monitor like the one below .


Slide5 l.jpg

During the seminar in Costa Rica, University of Costa Rica Drs Purdom and Hinsman proposed a pilot project to convert the RMTCs in Costa Rica and Barbados in specialized satellite training centers, with the cooperation of WMO andNOAA/NESDIS,through the Cooperative Institute for Atmospheric Research (CIRA), at Colorado State Univ. – Fort Collins


Slide6 l.jpg
Dr. Martin Yerg, at the International Activities Division (NOAA) helped finding resources to acquire computer equipment for the RMTC-CR


Reconstruction effort for hurricane mitch provided funds for l.jpg
Reconstruction effort for Hurricane Mitch provided funds for:

  • 2 RAMSDIS systems for every country in Central America

  • 1 server

  • training

  • calibration of rainfall algorithms

  • Help Desk at the RMTC


1999 wmo regional training seminar on satellite meteorology l.jpg
1999 WMO Regional Training Seminar on Satellite Meteorology for:

  • Coordinated by Dr. Donald Hinsman, from WMO, with lecturers from the RMTC and CIRA

  • 50 participants:

    • 21 sponsored by WMO

    • 11 by NOAA/Mitch project

    • 6 National Met. Service of Costa Rica

    • 12 from the RMTC

The RMTC in Costa Rica has evolved as a specialized training center in satellite meteorology

  • PCs available for training

  • Ingest of real time imagery with RAMSDIS systems

  • Computed aided learning, multimedia modules from COMET have been translated into Spanish

    • Satellite Meteorology: the new GOES imager

    • Satellite Meteorology: Case Studies

    • The Forecast Process

    • Numerical Weather Prediction

  • It participates and pools resources from the Virtual Laboratory for Education and Training in Satellite Meteorology

  • BoM via the WMO site:

  • http://www.wmo.ch/indexflash.html

  • CIRA site: http://www.cira.colostate.edu/ramm/wmovl/main.html

  • EUMETSAT site: http://oislab.eumetsat.de/VLab/


Challenges for the near future l.jpg
Challenges for the near future: center in satellite meteorology

  • Maintain the Help Desk beyond support from project Mitch

  • Expand the job done in Central America to other countries

  • Train students in the digital manipulation of imagery and products

    • Joint project between CIRA, UCR and ICE

    • Validation of the blended GOES/Microwave precipitation estimates and TRMM


Challenges for the near future13 l.jpg
Challenges for the near future: center in satellite meteorology

  • Keep up the pace of the Virtual Laboratory for Education and Training in Satellite Meteorology

    Leaded by WMO’s Expert Team on Improving Satellite Systems Utilization and Products

  • Automatic access to real time meteorological data is still required.

    Will it be LDM-UNIDATA?

    Or a NOAAPORT?

    ACCES TO REAL TIME DATA IS IMPORTANT IN TRAINING
