NOAA CoastWatch, East Coast Regional Node, is offering its
Ocean Satellite Data Training Course
May 20-22, 2019
University of Maryland, College Park, MD
at UMD's Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center

Maximum class size has been reached. We are no longer accepting registrations.

Are you interested in using oceanographic satellite data in your work but don't know where to start? The CoastWatch East Coast Node will offer a three-day course where participants learn about environmental satellite data and how to easily obtain and use it. Participants gain hands on experience working with the data of interest to them.

A major goal of the course is to provide scientists, students and resource managers, who are not regular users of satellite data, with the knowledge and tools they need to incorporate satellite data into their research and management projects. Hands-on lab time to learn the tools is part of the course.

  • Participants will need to bring your own laptop to the class, with the software loaded that you normally use for data analysis, e.g. ArcGIS, R, etc.
    Also, additional software to view and work with data will be provided ahead of the class via download for all participants.
  • Participants will need to bring a project idea for a project you would like to work on during the hands-on lab portion of the class. The more relevant the project to your own work, the more you will get out of the class.
  • Course Fee: There is no financial fee to attend this course. However we do expect ‘payment’ from participants in the form of a PowerPoint slide after the course indicating the results of your class project or how you are using satellite data in your work. These slides have been crucial for obtaining support for these courses, and for allowing NOAA management to demonstrate the importance of the public's investment in satellite data.
