Introduction

The Training Workshop (RA II) on Satellite Remote Sensing & GIS Applications in Agricultural Meteorology, was co-sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the Centre for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (CSSTEAP), the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), the National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA) and the Space Applications Centre (SAC).

The Commission for Agricultural Meteorology (CAgM) of WMO recognizes that training of technical personnel to acquire, process and interpret the satellite imagery is a major task. This training workshop was organized in response to the recommendations of the CAgM session in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2002 with the objective of helping the participants from the Asian countries in learning new skills and updating their current skills in satellite remote sensing and GIS applications in agricultural meteorology.

Sixteen participants from thirteen Asian countries, including Bangladesh, China, India, Kazakhstan, Lao PDR, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates participated in this training workshop.
