RUS Copernicus organises a full day hands-on training session focussing on the processing of Sentinel-3 data to monitor an upwelling event in the ocean.

The Sentinel-3 constellation is composed of two identical satellites, which aim at quantifying large-scale surface (both ocean and land) colour and temperature phenomena, as well as at measuring accurately the oceans and inland water bodies elevation.

After an introduction to the Sentinel-3 mission and associated products, participants will learn to retrieve manually and automatically these products from different data hubs. Then, the course will demonstrate the extensive applications and advantages of combining Sentinel-3 OLCI and SLSTR products to study the various manifestations of an upwelling event. The SNAP and Panoply software will be used throughout the workshop.

Attendance to this remote training session is free but requires registration before 15 March 2021.
