A new series of short online courses/webinars on data discovery for weather, oceanography, air quality and climate is starting this September.

The courses are open and address a wide range of attendees, from service providers to young (and less young) scientists and forecasters. We will do our best to keep the language and contents accessible to all even for those limited pre-exisiting know-how.

The format of each short course is a 1-2 hour webinar including a presentation and demonstration of data discovery and application. You will have the opportunity to interact with experts and ask questions. Some courses will include a follow-up self-paced phase where you are invited to explore the data and get feedback from experts.
