ECMWF eLearning – online resources

ECMWF has recently released a set of eLearning online resources freely available in their website at
The online resources are targeted both to NWP researchers and operational forecasters using the ECMWF products in their working duties.
The ones particularly scoped for operational forecasters are:

  • Ensemble Forecasting: sources of forecast uncertainty
  • Forecast Jumpiness: an introduction
  • The ECMWF Extended range forecasts: Introduction
  • The Extreme Forecast Index (EFI) and the Shift Of Tail (SOT) index

The development of eLearning resources is a clear signal of the strtegy of ECMWF to integrate traditional classroom training with eLearning opportunities.
