15 – 26 January 2018 Online
5 – 9 February 2018 Hamburg, Germany
We draw your attention to this user training event to be organised by EUMETSAT on behalf of the European Commission as part of the Copernicus Programme, together with its Satellite Application Facility on Ocean and Sea Ice (OSI), the COST Action ES1402 “Evaluation of Ocean Synthesis” and the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany (BSH) intent to deliver a course on
“Copernicus Marine Data in Ocean Models and Operational Applications”.
There will be an online phase from 15 to 26 January 2018 that is mandatory, as it will cover important information needed to successfully participate in the face-to-face workshop. The face-to-face workshop, kindly hosted by the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany (BSH), will focus on practical exercises for both, ocean modellers and users interested in Copernicus data for operational applications. Both groups will have the chance to exchange experiences amongst each other.
Please note that this is an advanced warning to help potential participants to plan and organise; however the performance of the course is pending the approval by the European Commission of EUMETSAT’s input to the Copernicus Work Programme 2018. We anticipate that we will get the approval during October. EUMETSAT will keep you posted.
