FICE-2024: A Training Event on In situ Ocean Colour Above-Water Radiometry towards Satellite Validation in Acqua Alta Oceanographic Tower and Venice
May 6, 2024
May 17, 2024
An advanced training course aiming to support those making measurements of in situ ocean colour towards satellite validation and biogeochemical applications. Building on the FRM4SOC project, the Copernicus FICE-24 course will bring experts in ocean colour measurements, satellite validation, and algorithm development together to provide training on the latest measurement and data processing protocols. Participants will have the opportunity to make measurements at the Acqua Alta Oceanographic Tower, learn how to process these measurements, characterise their uncertainties, and ultimately match them up with satellite ocean colour data. Data collected will contribute to the Copernicus Ocean Colour Database.
Travel funding is available for selected participants, with priority given to those working for institutions in Copernicus contributing countries.
A maximum of 20 participants will be accepted to join the training event. Anyone interested in the topics above with at least introductory experience in field measurements (not exclusively Ocean Colour radiometry) is welcome to submit. Advanced or senior experts are encouraged to apply, but priority will be given to PhD students, postdocs and early career scientists. Priority (not exclusive) will be given to applicants affiliated with institutions from Copernicus-contributing countries. Training, travel expenses, accommodation and per-diem will be covered either fully or partially by the Copernicus Programme.
