NOAA WCN Ocean Satellite Course

September 24 - 26, 2019
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m

"The course consists of both lectures and labs. The lectures introduce participants to the different types of environmental satellite data, including ocean color, sea surface temperature, sea surface height, salinity, and ocean surface winds. In addition, this year there will be an introduction to using data in high latitude and polar regions.

In the labs, participants are provided with individual workstations where they will use tools developed by the Environmental Research Division to locate online satellite data at the spatial and temporal coverage appropriate to their needs and download the data into the software of their choice. We generally focus on ArcGIS, Matlab, R and Python, because of the popularity of these software packages.

Participants are expected to come to the course with a specific project to work on during the labs. For example, if their project is to merge tagged animal tracks with satellite data, they should bring track data with them. Participants get more out of the workshop if they have specific questions or projects to work on."

First come, first serve. About 25 places will be available. The course is hands-on, free, and will be taught by 3 NOAA experts.
