HydrometAFRICA 2019 with The Baron Seminar on Weather Detection, Modeling and Display

Join Baron in Cairo on February 19-21! We’re partnering with Varysian as a top-level sponsor to host HydrometAFRICA—a new event in partnership with the Egyptian Meteorological Authority coordinated along with the WMO meetings and the 4th African Ministerial Conference on Meteorology (AMCOMET). We’re excited to have the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your hydrological and meteorological needs.

Baron Seminar on Weather Detection, Modeling and Display


Join us in Room 305 during HydrometAFRICA for a four-hour seminar on how innovative technologies make a crucial difference during any kind of hydrometeorological event. For attendee convenience, the seminar is being repeated each day, so you won’t have to miss a thing.

The information presented is targeted toward meteorological directors and their staff, plus associated ministry-level representatives.







Advances in Radar: Automated Quality Control
10 am – 11 am

Baron has made advances in automated calibration and clutter, enabling meteorologists to perform more accurate nowcasting through the remote operation of a weather radar network. This session will discuss these newly available innovations in weather detection and analysis.

Modeling Solutions
11 am – 12 pm

National meteorological services have needs across a wide range of disciplines, from numerical weather prediction and hydrology, to coupled marine modeling and air quality. You will learn the technology and techniques that drive these models, and how they can benefit your forecasting operations.

12 pm – 1 pm

Integrated Display Solutions
1 pm – 2 pm

It’s essential to have your organization’s weather data—radar, models, sensors and more— seamlessly integrated and distributed across multiple levels of your organization. This session will discuss how visualization across an integrated network can improve forecasting and nowcasting, and shorten warning lead times when weather threatens.

The Challenges of Meeting the Needs of National Weather Service Customers + A Q&A with Dr. Jack Hayes
3:00 – 4:00 pm

Dr. Jack Hayes, former director of the US National Weather Service, will describe his experiences working with vendors on bringing hydrometeorological innovation to his organization. His presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with Jack.
