Topic outline

  • How high is the sea? A discovery of altimetry data

    Discover the sea level data from the SRAL sensor onboard the Sentinel-3 satellite. We will cover where to get data and how to interpret the data to answer scientific questions in Python through the Jupyter Notebooks interface. We will also introduce the upcoming altimetry sensor on the Sentinel-6 mission.

    with Vinca Rosmorduc and Olly Clements

    In this course you will learn:

    • What is meant by "sea (surface) height"

    • How sea surface height is measure from space

    And we will demonstrate how you can access and work with altimetry data provided EUMETSAT using CODA and Python.
