NSMC and SMA held an online meeting

On June 25, the National Satellite Meteorological Center (NSMC) of China Meteorological Administration (CMA) and the Seychelles Meteorological Authority (SMA) held an video meeting on FY meteorological satellite application. 

SMA expressed the needs for harnessing FY satellites data, especially FY-2H and FY-4A, to conduct monitoring and early warning of severe convective weather like rainstorm in local areas. NSMC introduced the application of FY satellite products in severe convective weather monitoring like rainstorm, data acquisition and tools.  

Both sides conducted in-depth technical exchanges in terms of topics like establishing the channels for Seychelles to obtain FY satellite data and products, deployment and training of SWAP2 platform in Seychelles, integrated application of multi-source data from satellite and radar, and others.
