MARINEMET improvements

Taking into account the suggestions received, the following changes have been introduced in the MARINEMET website (

  • Loop of images (animation) for the deep sea water modelling products
  • Improvement of the availability of the real time remote sensing products (6-7 hours earlier than before)
  • Improvement of the availability of the deep sea water modelling products (1 hour earlier than before)
  • Correction of errors in the display of the columns in the deep sea water modelling products (the last column on the right didn't appear)

We hope these improvements are useful for you.

METAGRI Training Seminar for countries Phase III

In the context of the Project METAGRI, the agricultural meteorology project of AFRIMET (Conference of Directors of the West African National Meteorological and Hydrological Services), a training event for the National Focal Points of the NMHSs from Côte d' Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia and Nigeria was held between 29 to 30 March 2011 at the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) Regional Training Centre in Lagos (Nigeria).


The event was opened by the Permanent Representative of Nigeria, Dr. A.C. Anuforom welcoming the participants. He gave support words from the Minister of Aviation for the successful development of the activity.


The event was conducted by Mr. Daouda Z. Diarra, expert from the DMN Mali who brought to the participants his wide experience into agrometeorological projects with special emphasis in the mechanism and the organisation of the Roving Seminars in the sahelian countries.


It was also relevant the presence of the experts in agrometeorology from the Nigerian Meteorological Agency who brought their experience in a country that has a wide variety of climatic and agricultural regions.


Exchange of points of view was very successful and the trained Focal Points were ready to perform up to 10 Roving Seminars into their countries to accomplish the Phase III of the Project METAGRI. This project is technically managed by WMO and the NMS of 16 Western African Countries and it is funded by the Spanish State Agency of Meteorology (AEMET)
