  • 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 apply Data of EUMETSATs Copernicus Marine Data Stream for their marine work-flows and applications.

    Target Audience:
    This training is aimed at those working in the operational marine sector and government agencies who are interested in 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.

    Outline of course:

    This is a blended course that will be presented through two phases. The first will be a week of asynchronous, self-paced learning with educational resources provided through an online platform called Moodle. To work through these resources, attendees will require 1-2 hours of self-paced learning each day.

    The second phase will consist of live 2-hour demonstration sessions run daily for 2 weeks, to take attendees through the Moodle content. These ‘espresso sessions’ are optional for attendance, and will cover FAQs including SNAP and python demos, background and technical sessions, and questions and answer sessions for tailored 1:1 interaction. These sessions are also designed to help attendees tune CMDS approaches and dataflows to their unique operational projects and responsibilities

    Objectives:
    After the course participants will have the skills to:
    • Understand what data and products the Copernicus Marine Data Stream provides (variables, timeliness, resolution, data formats);
    • Select from the Copernicus Marine Data Stream appropriate products for specific tasks;
    • Access / download data and products provided in the Copernicus Marine Data Stream;
    • Know how to work with CMDS data in SNAP, GIS, and Python (Jupyter Notebooks);
    • Use data / products from the Copernicus Marine Data Stream for your own purposes.

    Dates:
    Self-Paced Online Phase:      19th - 23rd of April  2021
    Online Espresso Sessions:    26th April - 7th May 2021

    Application Deadline: 12th March 2021
    Applicants will be informed by the 19th of March if they have been selected. Please note that these courses are often highly subscribed to, and places are limited.
