Aviation | Events | AeroMetSci Webinars 2022 | RA III and RA IV
Thursday 9 June 2022 | Online via Zoom
for WMO Regional Associations III (South America) and IV (North America, Central America and the Caribbean)
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Services Commission (SERCOM), in collaboration with the Research Board (RB) Aviation Research and Development Project 2 (AvRDP2), will convene a web-based seminar (‘webinar’) on 9 June 2022, 1600 to 1900 UTC to showcase some of the latest state-of-the-art scientific and technological advances taking place in aeronautical meteorology in WMO Regional Associations III (South America) and IV (North America, Central America and the Caribbean).
The theme of the webinar is: “Scientific and technological innovation in observation and forecast of severe convection to enable service delivery transformation and improve aviation safety”.
The webinar will comprise a blend of pre-recorded video presentations and live panel discussions. Simultaneous interpretation into English and Spanish will be provided during the webinar.
