Societal benefits of user-focused
communication of satellite data,
products and services
CM4SH:
Conceptual Models for Southern Hemisphere
• 2 different entry points:
– The Method of Conceptual Models (CM)
• Extension from Northern Hemisphere (Europe) to Southern Hemisphere
–
Net of Virtual Laboratories – Centres of Excellence
•
Joint work on the CM topic
• Groups benefitting from combination of satellite data in CMs:
– The Meteorological training sector
• Students and teacher
– The Meteorological forecast centres
• More efficient work by combining satellite data with many other data
• better understanding of weather systems → Nowcasting, warnings →
• Benefit for user of weather forecasts
Conceptual Models
A conceptual model describes essential features of a meteorological phenomenon and
identifies the principal processes taking place

Virtual Laboratory for
Training and Education in
Satellite Meteorology
(VLab) is a global
network of specialized
training centres and
meteorological satellite
operators working
together to improve the
utilisation of data and
products from
meteorological and
environmental satellites.
CM 4 SH is built up by:
Participants from Australia, S-Africa, Argentina and Brazil:
Vlab + universities + weather services
Lead, Support and knowledge transfer from the European CM group and vice versa
Supervisors
Goals of CM4SH
•To collect, create and share resources about
CMs for Southern Hemisphere.
•To increase the operational forecasters’
understanding of the weather systems with
the help of CMs.
•To establish a virtual team that can work
together and support each other despite the
distance, team members trusting and inspiring
each other.

Elements for CM4SH
Föhn
Elements from SatManu
Upper level vortices: Cut off Low
SatManu/Europe: typical Cut off process
COL:
Different kind of cut-off lows occurring
together with a surface cold front and
initiating wave development over the
continent
Comparison
Rapid
cyclogenesis:

SE Australia
Mutual inspiration:
South Atlantic
Brazilian Convergence
Zone
↔
European Baroclinic
Zone
Goals – reached aims
(Topics very much based on the experience of Argentina presented on CalMet)

Inspection of the actual training
needs of forecasters
Promote the activities of CoE for
the relevant regions
Reinforce interaction between
institutions (university – weather
services) and other countries
(Argentina with: Brazil, Chile)
Be assisted by the European
experts  benefit from their
background
Introduction of new relevant
numerical parameters
Hoping for a
continuation of
project phases
Thank you for your
attention !
