Testbed weeks: 11 – 15 June, 18 – 22 June, 2 – 6 July and 9 – 13 July 2018
The goal of the Testbed is twofold. First, it caters forecasters who want to learn how to forecast severe convective storms using state-of-the-art forecasting tools. Second, it is a hands-on evaluation of new, sometimes experimental, forecast products. This means that both forecasters and developers of forecast products have an interest in the Testbed. In addition, other people having a background in meteorology are most welcome to participate as well.
A good preparation for the Testbed participation are the ESSL seminars “Forecasting Severe Convection I” and “Forecasting Severe Convection II”.
