Welcome to the Training Workshop "Using the Copernicus Marine Data Stream for Ocean Applications"
This 5 day, online phase of this training course will introduce you to the Copernicus Marine Data Stream from EUMETSAT, providing you with the background knowledge of the Copernicus programme, satellites and instrumentation, data access and formats, tools and software, necessary to begin working with this data for marine applications.
The aims of this training course (both online and classroom phases) are to help you:
This online phase of the training will consist of 14 topic areas, containing essential overview material to read/watch, further optional material which you may choose to look at depending on your own interests, short quizzes, and activities such as downloading and installing software, and trying to access data. The final topic will focus on preparation for the classroom phase, where we will ask you to propose a short project that you would like to work on using the CMDS. For those without specific applications in mind, we will also provide some ideas for projects you can work on, to learn more about the data and it's applications.
Announcements about the course will be displayed below, and you will also be notified of these by email.
Please take some time to look through the logistics information below which will provide useful information on how to make sure you complete the online phase, and are suitably prepared for the classroom phase that will follow.
You are invited to use the discussion forum below to introduce yourself and share with us your expectations for this course (what you are hoping to learn/use the CMDS data for).
There will be further discussion forums associated with the different topics and you are invited to post your comments and questions. The training team will be glad to answer your questions as best as we can during the course. As new users of the Copernicus data, this is also a great opportunity for us to get feedback from you about the data, access to it, and how we can improve these services to help you to best use the Copernicus marine data for your applications.
We hope you enjoy learning about the Copernicus Marine Data Stream, and look forward to working with you in person soon in Lisbon!
