Satellite Meteorology Training and Professional Development Anthony Mostek National Weather Service/Office of Meteorology April 4, 2000 rpactm996.ppt 9/18/96
Satellite Meteorology within Integrated Sensor Training Professional Development Series • Goals for Integrated Sensor Training (IST) • The Virtual Classroom - On-station Training - Computer Based Learning Modules (WEB/CD) - Residence Classroom Presentations/Labs - On-line Tutorials - Teletraining Sessions - Virtual Laboratory (RAMM/CIRA) • Evolving Training - IST and VISIT Integrated Sensor Training (IST) PDS Virtual Institute for Satellite Integration Training
Satellite Meteorology IST Professional Development Series • WHY? • Tremendous increase in quantitative information with GOES-8/-10 imagers/sounders and POES (AMSU) • New products: Fog/stratus, Reflected energy, ASOS Clouds, and Sounder (Images, Soundings, PW, LI, CAPE) • New Systems: AWIPS (LDADS, GINI) • HOW? • Cooperative effort with COMET Professional Development Series (PDS) and Residence Program plus NOAA Coop Institutes (CIRA, CIMSS, CIMMS)
Goals of Satellite Training • Improve understanding of satellite data interpretation as part of an integrated observing and forecasting system • Increase awareness of applications of satellite observations as analysis, Nowcasting, warning, and forecasting tools • Provide support for on-station training via the Professional Development Series on Integrated Sensor Training • Incorporate Polar satellites
Why use PDS Approach? • Provide an organized structure for all training materials • Keep us (the trainers) in touch with you (the on-station trainers/the students) • Help on-site training officers by providing: • Train-the-trainer support • WEB-based Modules & updates to CD modules • Teletraining sessions • Access to a growing set of on-line materials • Access to training activities at other offices (SOO resource)
Classroom Based Education Location: COMET Facility in Boulder Length: Two Weeks Instructors: Two Co-Leads & visitors Students: SOO or Satellite Focal Point Format: Focus on integrating datasets as students learn about satellite
Schedule of Courses • 4 Classes in 1996 • 97-3 October 27 - November 6 • 97-4 December 1 - 11 • 98-1 January 27 - February 5 • 98-2 April 14 - 23 • 98-3 September 8-18 • 99-1 March • 99-2 April • 00-1 April • FY 2001? – New Workshops
The IST PDS Building on the Computer Based Learning Modules
SatMet1Remote Sensing Using the New GOES Imager • First in a series of satellite meteorology modules • Subject Matter Experts • Paul Menzel (NESDIS/CIMSS) • James Purdom (NESDIS/CIRA) • SatMet2 - Case Studies Using GOES Imager Data • SatMet3 - Using the GOES Sounder
Components of the Virtual Classroom All you need are the Satellite Meteorology Homepages! “www.comet.ucar.edu/class/satmet/ common/html/website_index/” link to “Satellite Meteorology Training Checklist” • RAMSDIS Online • POES Training Web Modules • CIMSS GOES Gallery • NESDIS Products - Sounder, QPE, Winds and more
Components of the IST PDS Support On-station Training • For Students at SatMet Course Schedule, Students/Instructors, Lab Exercises • Selected Presentations • On-line Tutorials and Case Studies/Exercises • WEB-based Modules (New POES Series) • VISIT Teletraining and WEB sessions as part of • Move on to Integrated Sensor Training
Integrated Sensor Training PDS • Integrated Sensor Training PDS (meted.ucar.edu/ist) • Lightning, Surface/upper air, Radar, Satellite • Focus on applications within AWIPS • Integration with NWP/QPF/Aviation PDSs • Coordinate with Regions/Offices to Focus on Specific Training Needs • Cooperative effort between NESDIS, NWS Training Centers and Regions, and CIRA (Virtual Institute for Satellite Integration Training), CIMSS, CIMMS, and COMET
