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.

Date & Time

This event will take place Tuesday, 16th of March 2021 between 10:00 and 17:00 CET. 


Attendees must be in possession of their own computer with a microphone to follow the online training and will be provided with access to the RUS platform Virtual Machine.
