General overview

The National School of meteorology organizes every year a summer school at Constanta and a winter school in Bucharest. This year the National Meteorological Administration of Romania and the World Meteorological Organization will organize the workshop on "Observations and Numerical Weather Prediction of Severe Storms - Flash Floods Forecasting", to be held in Constanta, Romania, from 20 to 25 August 2006 (Course Brochure).

This idea was warmly accepted and supported by the World Meteorological Organization, being designed to provide a forum for exchange of knowledge between South-East Europe forecasters on Severe Weather Forecasting, Mesoscale Processes and Operational Nowcasting.
The ideal candidate will be a young operational forecaster, proving a good command of English. We specify that the course will be conducted in English. Your delegate will deliver, in English, within a seminar of this course, a short 20-minute presentation of a case study on a severe flood event occurred in his/her country in the last years.

During the workshop, the participants will benefit from specialized training provided by Dr. David M. Schultz from the Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies, University of Oklahoma, and NOAA/National Severe Storms Laboratory, Norman, Oklahoma, USA, and by Romanian lecturers with experience in these research topics.
The official organizer of this workshop will be the National Meteorological Administration of Romania, which is ready to provide participation fee, accommodation, meals and local transport for your selected candidate. WMO has expressed its willingness to co-sponsor the participants' attendance by covering travel expenses. No per diem support will be provided.
