for Biological Oceanographers
A two-week summer training course is being offered to researchers who have
modest or no prior experience with satellite remote sensing techniques.
The goal of the course is to teach participants the basic skills needed to
work independently to acquire, analyze and visualize data sets derived
from a variety of satellite sensors (e.g., SeaWiFS, MODIS, AVHRR, SeaWinds
and Topex/Jason). The course will focus a lot of attention on developing
IDL (Research Systems Inc.) programming skills. A central feature of the
IDL programming effort will involve working with SeaDAS commands from
within IDL to batch process large quantities of raw SeaWiFS and MODIS data
to obtain high resolution mapped images of chlorophyll and other
ocean-color related products. The course will run from June 1 though June
15 and is open to advanced undergraduate students, graduate students and
post-graduate professionals. For more information about the course,
The application deadline is May 1, 2007.
