In 2020 EUMETSAT started a series of online short courses on data discovery for weather, oceanography, air quality and climate. A typical online short course consist of a main session, which takes about one to two hours. During the main session, experts present the main topic, followed by a Q & A session via tools like slido. Some courses provide hands-on exercises, which consist of an introduction, followed by a phase, where the participants work on their own, and a feedback session, which might be a few days later. Most of the climate related courses made use of the CM SAF R Toolbox for the hands-on exercises.
A big advantage of online training is the accessibility to a wider audience and the possibility to record a sessions for a later online access. All records and some accompanying material are provide on the respective course websites.
So far, CM SAF supported the following online short courses:
|December 2021||Coding for EO (Python & R)|
|June 2021||A Climate Data Record of Soil moisture in the root zone|
|May 2021||Exploring the EUMETSAT Land-Surface Temperature Data Records|
|Feb 2021||Applications of R-Instat to analyse and validate satellite based climate time series|
|Jan 2021||Learn to use an R-based toolbox to analyse climate time series - Basics|
|Oct 2020||A climate data record of "sunshine", SARAH|
For some examples of results from participants of our online short courses, you might have a look at the CM SAF Padlet Website.
