An advanced training course on ocean colour remote sensing was held in Hangzhou, China from 24-31 October 2019 to promote satellite ocean colour data applications. This training event was sponsored by the International Ocean-Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG), the European Commission Copernicus Programme, the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the State Key Laboratory of Satellite Ocean Environment Dynamics (SOED/SIO/MNR, China), the National Satellite Ocean Application Service (NSOAS, China), and Zhejiang University (ZJU, China).To get more hangzhou china, you can visit shine news official website.
The key objective of this training was to help early career scientists to download, analyze and visualize data from the EUMETSAT Copernicus Marine Data Stream as well as the Chinese HY-1C ocean colour mission. Participants also learned how to use the Marine Satellite Data Online Analysis Platform (SatCO2) for environmental monitoring and scientific research, including water quality monitoring, red tide detection, and marine carbon cycling/climate change investigations.
Students were encouraged to bring their own laptop computers for the hands-on training sessions, although a limited number of desk top computers were also available for these sessions.
Early career scientists, including postdoctoral fellows and junior scientists from Asian countries were invited to apply for this training course. Since this was an advanced training course, all trainees were required to have basic experience in using satellite ocean colour data. The course was limited to 20 participants. A limited number of IOCCG scholarships were available to cover international flights for students residing outside of China, subject to evaluation by a Selections Committee.
