Marine Training Workshop on the Use of Satellite Wind and Wave Products in South American Waters


Primary To improve the use of satellite wind (scatterometer) and wave (altimeter) data products in marine forecasting and research.
This will be accomplished via:
- An introduction to scatterometry and altimetry
- Case studies utilizing actual satellite, in-situ and model data products in the AWIPS environment

Secondary Introduction to the utilization of AWIPS as an analysis & display tool to facilitate handling these data products.
Overview of how to access these products, whether for operational or research use – GEONETCAST, NOAA DDS, GTS, FTP, etc.
Introduction to INPE as a potential source of scientific and technical support for South American colleagues following the Workshop.
