The Intern track of the Satellite Hydrology and Meteorology (SHyMet) Course will touch on Geostationary and Polar orbiting satellite basics (areal coverage and image frequency), identification of atmospheric and surface phenomena, and provide examples of the integration of meteorological techniques with satellite observing capabilities. This course will be administered through web-based instruction and will be the equivalent of 16 hours of training. Initially the Intern Track was targeted for NWS interns. It is now open to anyone inside or outside of NOAA who wishes to review the "basics" of satellite meteorology.
