Annual Satellite Data Training

The next NOAA Ocean Satellite Data Course will be held in Juneau, Alaska in March 2019. In this annual three-day course participants learn about ocean satellite data and how to easily obtain it. Participants gain hands on experience working with data of interest to them. The course provides scientists who are not regular users of satellite data with the tools they need to incorporate satellite data into their projects. More information and registration details

Code Gallery

The PolarWatch Code Gallery is a collection of examples for accessing and utilizing satellite data in the polar regions. This site is geared towards scientists and others interested in “diving deep” into the numbers and creating original plots and data analysis. Most examples are written in Python, however, we hope to have examples written in Matlab, and R in the future.
