Cornell Summer Satellite Remote Sensing Training Course

Cornell is offering a summer training course on satellite remote sensing.  It will take place at Cornell University, Ithaca New York from May 30-June 13, 2014.  This program is a two-week summer satellite remote sensing training course is being offered 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 range of ocean satellite sensors.  Strong emphasis is given to ocean color remote sensing and the use of the latest version of NASA’s SeaDAS software 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 surface height.  Developing good IDL programming skills for data analysis and visualization is a central component of the course.  More information can be found at:
