Copernicus Marine Data Stream for Ocean Applications Online Training course
May 31, 2021
June 25, 2021
The purpose of this EUMETSAT Copernicus Marine Data Stream (CMDS) training course is to share knowledge, skills, resources and code so attendees are able to independently access and process Data of EUMETSATs Copernicus Marine Data Stream (or a similar working it is not only Sentinel-3 data, but also contributing missions such as Jason-3 and others) for their marine work-flows and applications.
Training will take place entirely online and through two phases. The first self-taught phase will take place between 31 May and 18 June and will take approximately 6-8 hours in total to complete. This will involve self-paced flexible learning through webinars, forums (particularly for software installations), documentation and assignments. The second virtual classroom phase will be held during the week 21 - 25 June and will be hosted over Zoom, made up of interactive tutorials, live demos, group work, and 1:1 meetings. This will require 5-7 hours of participation each day.
Training is aimed at, but not restricted to, early career scientists: Masters / PhD students, Post-Docs, and/or experienced scientists from any relevant sector (industry, government, environment, research) who have clear motivations for working with satellite-based ocean observation data for marine applications. It would be beneficial for participants to have introductory experience using SNAP and/or a scripting language such as Python (or similar), but this is not a prerequisite. Please note that this course is aimed primarily at European audiences and participants from Copernicus programme member states.
