Accessing and working with state of the art satellite data for marine applications

Satellite data provides information on the marine environment that can be used for many applications. The most modern generation of satellites offer improvements in spatial and temporal resolution as well as a constantly evolving suite of products.

Data from the European Union Copernicus programme is open and free for everyone to use however they wish – whether from academic, governance, or commercial backgrounds. The programme has an operational focus, with satellite constellations offering continuity of service for the foreseeable future. There is a growing availability of open source tools that can be used to work with this data.

This course is a collaboration between EUMETSAT, PEMSEA, POGO, and ACCORD.
