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

Sunday 25 November 2018 - Monday 26 November 2018

University of the Philippines Visayas, Iloilo


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 training course is an opportunity to learn about the data available from Copernicus and other relevant Earth Observation programmes, and then provide opportunities to develop your own workflows for using data from the EUMETSAT Copernicus Marine Data Stream, using the Sentinel Applications Platform (SNAP) software, and Python programming.
