WMO VLab Americas and Caribbean Focus Group - Introduction

We are a group that meets virtually via the Internet once a month to view satellite and other imagery, and share information on global, regional, and local weather patterns, hurricanes, severe weather, flooding, and other interesting phenomena. We are researchers, forecasters, trainers, students, and managers - mostly from Central and South America and the Caribbean, with a few from the United States and an occasional few that join in from other parts of the world. We are able to "build capacity" by communicating with others in our disciplines and across disciplines from many different countries to discuss the impacts of forecasts or impacts of broad reaching phenomena such as El Niņo.
