Cross-thematic Webinars (short courses)

Series of online short courses on data discovery for weather, oceanography, air quality and climate

The courses are open and address a wide range of attendees, from service providers to  scientists and forecasters. Participants will have the opportunity to learn: 

      • which are the EUMETSAT and Copernicus free and open data.
      • where to access the data and where to find information about the data.
      • how to handle the data using the tools proposed.
The format of each short course is a 1-2 hour webinar including a presentation and demonstration of data discovery and application. You will have the opportunity to interact with experts and ask questions. 
 Certificates of participation may be awarded upon request. All sessions will be recorded.
