The European Weather Cloud (EWC) teams at ECMWF and EUMETSAT are pleased to invite you to the upcoming thematic EWC webinar series in 2024, following the two successful introductory webinars held last year (you can find more information, including the video recordings, here and here). These recurring thematic webinars are aimed at new or prospective users of the EWC service, provided by EUMETSAT and ECMWF, which is available to all ECMWF and EUMETSAT Member and Co-operating States. Our primary objective is to provide guidance to users on how to effectively use the different capabilities of the EWC.

The first webinar of this new series will take place on 21 March 2024 at 9 UTC, and will be about using the EWC to download data from the EUMETSAT Data Access Services. If you would like to attend, we kindly ask you to register here. We will alert you of your acceptance to the webinar and send you all the joining information and Microsoft Teams meeting details in due course.

In this webinar, participants will explore various aspects of cloud utilisation, with a specific emphasis on key functionalities such as provisioning and configuring virtual machines. Furthermore, we will explore how to access the EUMETSAT data catalogue made available through the Data Access Services, more precisely, using the EUMETSAT Data Access Client. Additionally, we will show the utilization of the pre-installed application, Data Tailor, which offers customization options, enabling users to tailor datasets according to their requirements and preferences. 

By the end of this 1-hour session, participants will not only have gained valuable insights into the operational dynamics of the EWC, but will also possess the practical skills needed to navigate the EUMETSAT Data Access Services.

Additional webinars on different topics are planned in April and June, so stay tuned for more information!
