Ocean-colour data in climate studies advanced training short course
The course will deliver training in ocean-colour data and their applications in climate studies. Remote sensing experts from the Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) will guide students through a combination of lectures and computer-based exercises covering the following topics: 1) Introduction to ocean colour; 2) Modelling primary production; 3) Ocean colour applications for ecosystem state assessment; 4) Climate impacts and feedbacks; 5) Ocean colour in data assimilation; 6) Dataset archive, management, visualisation and analysis. Students will also have opportunity of informal discussion with instructors outside of the formal lectures.
A visit of the NERC Earth Observation Data Acquisition and Analysis Service (NEODAAS) that is hosted at PML will be provided.
