The Ocean Virtual Laboratory project is organising a Multi-Sensor Synergy Training, focused on introducing new, efficient ways of satellite data processing and exploitation. Participants will get strong background in remote sensing, learn how to obtain and work with data from the state-of-art operational space missions.


To discover and analyse, via the OVL platform, the synergy between various Ocean remote sensing datasets in the context of model output (both oceanic and atmospheric) and in-situ data.


Dr. Fabrice COLLARD, Dr. Anton KOROSOV, Dr. Graham QUARTLY and Pr. Mirek DARECKI
