Ocean Optics Summer Class - July 7 – August 2, 2013 at the University of Maine, Darling Marine Center

Ocean Optics Summer Class:
Calibration and validation of ocean color remote sensing.July 7 – August 2, 2013 at the Darling Marine Center An intensive four-week, cross-disciplinary, graduate-level course in Optical Oceanography will be offered at the University of Maine, Darling Marine Center in summer 2013.  This class is a continuation of the Optical Oceanography course first offered at the Friday Harbor Laboratories in 1985 and more recently at the Darling Marine Center.  Past graduates are many of today's leaders in oceanography.The major theme of the course is calibration and validation of ocean color remote sensing. The course will provide students with a fundamental knowledge of ocean optics and optical sensor technology that will ena…

Summer Satellite Remote Sensing Training Course - Cornell University, Ithaca New York

Summer Satellite Remote Sensing Training Course
May 31 - June 14, 2013, Cornell University, Ithaca New York
A two-week summer satellite training course is being offered once again to marine scientists who have modest or no prior experience with satellite remote sensing techniques. The course is highly methods-oriented and intended to give participants the practical skills needed to work independently to acquire, analyze and visualize large data sets derived from a wide variety of ocean satellite sensors. Strong emphasis is given to ocean color remote sensing and the use of NASA's SeaDAS software (both version 6 and 7-beta) to derive mapped imagery of geophysical parameters (e.g., chlorophyll or CDOM) from raw SeaWiFS, MODIS, MERIS and VIIRS data.  The course also covers image analysis methods to work with satellite imagery of sea surface temperature, ocean wind speed and sea surfac…
