In a bid to better understand the maintenance, long term traceability and calibration of Meteorological instruments Users of meteorological observations have increasing needs for high quality Meteorological and hydrological data.
The traceability of these data to the International System of Units (SI) standards is needed to ensure their quality and to meet the users’ Requirements. The course focuses on the latest science of measurement, siting of Meteorological instruments, care and maintenance of basic and automatic meteorological Instruments, calibration of meteorological instruments, troubleshooting (default detection) in Instruments, and drawing speciﬁcation for weather instruments and measurement systems.
The course will address ground based instruments and instruments on-board satellites. Lessons Learned from already on-orbit meteorological satellites and new generation satellites from around the world will be introduced and discussed.
