Instrument calibration training materials

As described in "RIC Tsukuba package", RIC Tsukuba provides training materials (i.e., presentations and content for practical application) on calibration involving standard instruments/equipment used by recipients for targeted NMHSs. The materials include presentations and practice sheets to help technical staff understand fundamental concepts and appreciate the importance of the framework for international traceability regarding meteorological instruments. A sample of the content is shown below.
