Webinar: Using Jupyter on the EWC to interact with ECMWF datasets

Virtual | April 23, 2024


Xavier Abellan, ECMWF


The European Weather Cloud (EWC) teams at ECMWF and EUMETSAT are pleased to invite you to the second thematic EWC webinar of 2024.

These recurring thematic webinars are aimed at new or prospective users of the EWC service, provided by EUMETSAT and ECMWF, which is available to all ECMWF and EUMETSAT Member and Co-operating States. Our primary objective is to provide guidance to users on how to effectively use the different capabilites of the EWC.

While the first two webinars in 2023 focused on the basics to get you started (you can find more information, including the video recordings, here and here), in this series we explore various aspects of cloud utilisation through examples, with a specific emphasis on key functionalities and cloud skills. The EUMETSAT-focused webinar took place in march, and can be found here.

Throughout this webinar, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of spinning up your personalised Jupyter instance on the cloud including the provisioning of the virtual infrastructure required, as well as how to automate the deployment of the necessary software stack with ansible and git.

Once our Jupyter platform is up and running, we will explore various examples illustrating how to work with ECMWF datasets. From downloading and processing data to visualising insights in an interactive manner, this webinar aims to equip you with additional tools and knowledge needed to leverage the power of the European Weather Cloud to access your favourite weather and climate datasets.

By the end of this 1-hour session, participants will have learnt about how to automate the provisioning of a cloud service such as Jupyter as well as familiarised themselves with different tools to access the ECMWF Data Services portfolio.


Please note that this webinar is open to anyone from an ECMWF or EUMETSAT Member and Co-operating State. 

If you would like to attend the webinar, please complete the registration form in the left-hand side menu. We will alert you of your acceptance to the webinar and send you all the joining information and Microsoft Teams meeting details in due course.

The webinar will be conducted in English.
