TCC Training Seminar on One-month Forecast

JMA's Tokyo Climate Center (TCC) assists National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) in improving their climate services. The Center's two major activities in this regard involve providing basic climate data and products to NMHSs through its website and assisting with capacity development at NMHSs in the Asia-Pacific region. TCC holds annual training seminars as part of capacity development activities related to its role as an RCC in the WMO RA II area. In addition to running annual training seminars, it arranges expert visits to and hosts visitors from NMHSs to support discussions on climate services and the effective transfer of technology.

In 2015, TCC held the Training Seminar on One-month Forecast from 16 to 20 November 2015 at JMA Headquarters in Tokyo. The event was attended by 15 experts from NMHSs in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Hong Kong (China), Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Viet Nam. The seminar focused on enhancing knowledge of one-month forecasts and related issues, and on improving individual countries' capacity for the generation of such forecasts. The course included lectures and practical exercises using data, products and a web-based application tool available on the TCC website as well as in-situ observation data brought by participants.

At the end of the seminar, all participants gave presentations on one-month forecast in their own countries and engaged in fruitful discussions with lecturers and participants. The content of the lectures is available on the TCC website at http://ds.data.jma.go.jp/tcc/tcc/library/library2015.html.
