Meteorological Masterclass Webinar Series
The Royal Meteorological Society has joined with the University of Reading to offer a Meteorological Masterclass Series providing training for professionals working in Meteorology and Climate Science. Leading experts will present the latest science for understanding and predicting storm track behaviour across three timescales: from the synoptic-scale meteorology of storms and blocking, to weather-regimes and their consequences for extended-range forecasting and the impacts of climate change and its simulation.
The free webinars will benefit practitioners working in the field of meteorology, offering an opportunity to refresh and deepen participants’ knowledge and awareness of the latest science, research and its applications. The webinars will be held from 3pm to 4.30pm (BST) with a presentation followed by questions and discussion with the speaker. Whilst the webinars are part of a series people can choose which to attend and attendance at all three is not compulsory.
