    Course title: The ozone hole tour
    18 February 2021, 12:00 UTC
    with Federico Fierli and Julia Wagemann

    This short course focuses on the ozone dataset from the GOME-2 instrument. We will discuss the basics of the stratospheric ozone science and the observational techniques. Then we will bring participants in working with datasets on an intuitive series of Notebooks to (1) familiarize with data and (2) get ready to make their own analysis and animations.

    The course has three components:
    • A science webinar on the story of ozone science and an introduction on the satellite instruments to measure the ozone in the atmosphere.
    • A guided data discovery with assignments.
    • A self paced phase where everyone can handle the data and prepare an exercise with a recap session on 22 Febr at 12:00 UTC to gather additional questions and discuss the outcome of the practical phase.
