GOES-R Workshop for Broadcast Meteorologists
November 18, 2016 1:00 - 8:00 pm EST (L-1)
Presented by StormCenter Communications, Inc., the GOES-R Workshop for Broadcast Meteorologists will provide a unique opportunity for broadcast meteorologists from around the nation to engage with professionals from NOAA and NASA on the launch of the next generation GOES-R weather satellite. This revolutionary satellite will transform weather forecasting with its high spatial and temporal resolution sensor called the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI).
While a limited number of broadcast meteorologists will be able to attend onsite, StormCenter has partnered with The COMET Program/UCAR to offer an interactive live webinar for broadcast meteorologists who cannot attend the event in person. By registering and participating remotely, participants may also earn continuing education credits toward maintaining certification for the AMS CBM and NWA Seal of Approval. The workshop recording will also be available for online access after the event.
Webinar Participants: For information on registering and joining the webinar, see below under “Webinar Instructions for Remote Attendees.”
