Mi è arrivata la newsletter da Satrep on-line con l'annuncio di questo nuovo modulo/eserciziario; vi incollo la presentazione.

Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) is a fundamental part of the
modern forecasting. The importance of NWP in the forecasting process
is so obvious that we often forget the restrictions and limitations of
NWP. Models do have errors, even a lot of them. Even with ever
improving performance the NWP models still have many problems in
predicting many weather elements precisely.

It is of extreme importance that the forecaster can be able to
evaluate the performance of NWP in a daily operational environment,
and not be misled by the NWP output.

This Model Monitoring Module will concentrate on one aspect in model
error correction: the subjective monitoring the NWP output with the
help of satellite images. The purpose of the module is to help
forecaster to use selected satellite products for a quick analysis of
how the NWP model is able to catch the features in the weather chart.

The target users for this module are operational forecasters and
developers. The pre-requisites for completing this module are general
knowledge of meteorology, some experience in forecasting and a basic
knowledge of the satellite images and image techniques.
