New online short course series starting September 2020


We propose a series of continuous online short courses for the 2020-2021 season. 

The courses are open and will cover, as an ensemble, different thematics: Weather, Oceanography, Air Quality and Climate.
Each course will introduce background, one or more datasets and provide guidance on data discovery in the following format:

  • A webinar providing examples of application and a description of one or more datasets, including a practical session demonstration.
  • A self-paced phase.
  • 1 hr wash-up session to revise the practicals (not mandatory).
  • A discussion forum where lecturers/experts can interact with the participants in Padlet/Slido.

Courses are designed for a wide range of attendees.  From service providers to young (and less young) scientists, forecasters... 
We will do our best to keep the language and contents accessible to those who have a limited pre-exisiting know-how. 

The participants will learn and improve:
  • Awareness:  about EUMETSAT and Copernicus free and open data.
  • Discovery: know where to access the data and where to find information about the data.
  • Handling: be able to do handle the data using the tools suggested.
A certificate of participation may be awarded upon request.
The online series program will start from September 2020 with a first block of modules introduced by an overarching webinar about EUMETSAT training and methods.

Registration is will soon be available here



Get an overview on the climate data records available from the EUMETSAT Satellite Application Facilities, learn how to access them and gain first experiences on working with free and open data in the CM SAF - R -Toobox. Data and software developers will be available for questions and guidance.

Learn about Copernicus data for Atmospheric Composition and learn how to develop your own workflows based on sample applications. The European Union Copernicus programme is open and free for everyone - whether from academic, government, or commercial backgrounds. The programme has an operational focus, with satellite constellations and services. Satellite data provides composition vital information on key atmospheric constituents at different spatial and temporal scales with a continuous improvements in observational spatial and temporal resolution, coverage and measured species as well as a constantly evolving added value products from the Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Services.

This short course will guide attendess through the workflow of finding appropriate data, downloading the data and analysing the data.  Through the course we will make use of the WeKEO DIAS hosted processing system, Sentinel Applications Platform (SNAP) software, and Python programming language.
