PML Applications helps deliver training course for researchers across Europe

20 April 2018

As part of the EUMETSAT Copernicus Marine Training Service contract PML Applications and PML are delivering a number of training courses on availability, access and usage of marine data produced by EUMETSAT as part of the Copernicus programme. 

People around a table being taughtThis week (16-20 April) Ben Calton from PML Applications joined Hayley Evers-King and Ben Loveday from PML in Riga, Latvia to deliver a course titled ‘Using the Copernicus Marine Data Stream for Ocean Applications’ to a diverse group of researchers from across Europe. 

They had 23 participants for this two part course; the first part was an online phase where participants were presented with learning material (partly produced by PML Applications/PML) via the EUMETSAT Training portal, which was then cemented in an interactive classroom phase. 

During the classroom phase participants were expected to have a use case in mind that relates to their area of research, and they were assisted and coached by the team to answer their Copernicus data availability, access and download issues to help answer these research questions.
