Thursday, 9 May, from 9:00
The OceanPredict ’19 symposium offers training sessions for those interested in
- Ocean data & products (discovery, accessibility, quality, utility) – the Copernicus Marine Service
- Data Assimilation – A broad introduction to ocean data assimilation, including an overview of data assimilation methods and discussions of the practical issues affecting the design of the operational systems.
More information about the course content can be found below. Attendance to either training sessions is free. Current place assignments are based on indications of interest during registration process. Everyone is welcome to come along on the day.
