This short course will give you an introduction to dust monitoring and forecasting. The course will give you first a high-level introduction to data observations (ground-based and satellite) and model forecasts that can be used to monitor and forecast dust events. The high-level introduction is followed by a practical data discovery part. Focussing on one dust event, the practical part will practically introduce you to satellite-, ground- and model-based data. For each dataset featured, you will get a practical hands-on introduction on how to access, process, visualize and interpret the dataset.
The course outline is as follows:
- Part 1: High-level introduction to data observations and model forecasts (~ 30 min)
- Part 2: Practical hands-on data discovery part (~ 55 min)
(~ 10 min)
Note: course participants will be able to follow the practical data discovery part live via a dedicated training platform.
