Monitoring the Oceans from Space MOOC

Gain a deeper understanding of the oceans through the upcoming, free, Monitoring the Oceans from Space MOOC run by EUMETSAT in support of the EU’s Copernicus programme.

Join oceanographer and BBC science presenter Dr Helen Czerski, (University College, London), Dr Hayley Evers-King, marine Earth observation scientist (Plymouth Marine Laboratory), and Dr Mark Higgins, (EUMETSAT), to learn more about how the satellites are used to keep an eye on the health of the oceans.

The Massive Open Online Course, funded by the EU’s Copernicus programme, is aimed at a general audience and will give an introduction to the benefits and potential uses of satellite-based ocean observations.
It will explain how to access and use marine Earth observation data and information from Copernicus/EUMETSAT missions, as well as the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service.
This free online course runs for five weeks from 24 October 2016 on the FutureLearn platform.
You can REGISTER for the course here.
