REGISTRATION FORM - 2nd TAMSAT training workshop on satellite rainfall estimation and validation over Africa
We are pleased to announce that the second TAMSAT training workshop on satellite rainfall estimation and validation over Africa will be taking place between 13th-29th September 2021.

The overall aim of this workshop is to improve capacity in Africa to use satellite-based rainfall datasets for climate services. As such, the course will cover a range of topics including the theory behind the main approaches to satellite rainfall estimation focussing on the TAMSAT methodology, the strengths and weaknesses of using satellite rainfall estimates over rain gauge measurements and common approaches to satellite rainfall validation. The course will also include a range of practicals to develop technical abilities to handle and interrogate satellite rainfall estimates to support both research and climate services.

The workshop will be split over six live plenary sessions alongside self-taught offline sessions to support your learning of the topics covered. The course itself is aimed at students and professional meteorologists from across Africa, although those from other sectors are welcome to attend. The course is free to attend.

If you would like to attend the workshop, please complete the form below. A workshop information pack will then be emailed to you in early September.

If you have any questions, please contact the workshop organiser, Ross Maidment (
