As part of EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (#shareEGU20) a series of short courses on Atmospheric Composition, Climate and Ocean Applications will be given. Some prior information on the courses will given during the EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (#shareEGU20), in the week 4 - 8 May 2020. Further details on how to join to this intro session can be found at the page of the EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (#shareEGU20).

The short courses themselves will be a combination of short presentations and hands-on exercises and are scheduled as follows:

SC 1.22 - Using Copernicus Marine Data: Satellite data for ocean applications

Tuesday, 19 May 2020
10:00 CEST - 12:00 CEST (8:00 - 10:00 UTC) 

SC 1.23 - EUMETSAT’s Climate Data Records: Using satellite data for climate applications
Wednesday, 20 May 2020 (tbc)
10:30 CEST - 14:30 CEST  (8:30 - 12:30 UTC)

SC 1.21 - Using Copernicus data for Atmospheric Composition ApplicationsTuesday, 26 May 2020, 
10:30  - 11:30 CEST
Friday, 29 May 2020,
10:30  - 11:30 CEST

Registration is closed. We will send further information to everybody who registered soon.

This short course is an opportunity to get an overview about the climate data records available from the EUMETSAT Satellite Application Facilities, learn how to access them and gain some first experiences in how to working with these free and open data in the CM SAF - R -Toolox. Participants will have the opportunity do hands-on exercises using the data. Data and software developers will be available online to help and answer questions.

Course Agenda:

08:30 UTC:live kick off session
09:15 UTC:Hands-on Exercises (self paced)
11:30 UTC:Sharing results
12:30 UTC:Wrap up and Feedback

This short course is an opportunity to learn about Copernicus data for Atmospheric Composition and to get examples 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.

May 2020

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. A guide will be provided prior to the course with information on installing necessary software if you would like to follow along. We will also offer some one on one time if there are any issues or problems installing the software. No experience is necessary as various exercises will be provided for a wide range of skill levels and applications.

The course will be given online, a connection URL will be shared with the registered attendees.
