How high is the sea? A discovery of altimetry data
Discover the sea level data from the SRAL sensor onboard the Sentinel-3 satellite. We will cover where to get data and how to interpret the data to answer scientific questions in Python through the Jupyter Notebooks interface. We will also introduce the upcoming altimetry sensor on the Sentinel-6 mission.
with Vinca Rosmorduc and Olly Clements
In this course you will learn:
- What is meant by "sea (surface) height"
- Why the height of the sea matters
- How sea surface height is measure from space
And we will demonstrate how you can access and work with altimetry data provided EUMETSAT using CODA and Python.
