Operational Oceanography Workshop – 26/28 May 2020

I had the pleasure to be invited to present in this online workshop organised by the University of Algarve (Centre for marine and environment research). I presented, to the around 400 attendants, an overview of what are the data/services offered by the Copernicus Marine Environment Service (CMEMS). In addition I delivered also a training session in how read, convert, manipulate and plot such marine data (NetCDF format, which is the standard at the moment for such type of data) using the python programming language in a Jupiter notebook environment managed by Binder (It allowed me to deliver the code to all the users and then be able to easily follow me in live and interact with the code).

If you wish to access and visualise all the 3 days conference Click HERE to access the official Youtube channel or if you want just to have a general overview of the presentation/topic covered please to download the program brochure. Below I just post an extract of my presentation and in particular about the entire practical training session which can be helpfull to have a general insight of the python language power on this topic. The marine data required ( Sea Surface Temperature, more details in the online jupiter notebook accessible by the githhub repository indicated in red below) is already downloaded and prepared to be processed but please to be aware that if you want download by yourself and using your own download parameters you need to register to the CMEMS web portal. Anyway below my workshop/practical session extracted from my whole presentation (about 1h and 30min) :
