IMG 2447During the month of August, 2015, I completed a combined secondment to the University of Cologne and RPG. I spent 2 weeks at RPG and a week and a half at the University of Cologne.

The two weeks at RPG were a great learning experience in terms of the industry standards and practices. I was given an orientation of the company and Microwave Radiometer instrument. Several training sessions and meetings with Mr. Harry Czekala and Mr. Thomas Rose were of great educational value for the understanding of practical considerations related to the instrument and information retrieval.

sec clau McGill

My secondment at the McGill University took place between the 4th of February and the 11th of March 2015.

I arrived in the afternoon of the 4th February and the first thing that really astonished me was the ability of the plane to land on a completely snow-white landing lane. The softest and coldest landing in my life.
