Expanding the use of Copernicus marine satellite data: EUMETSAT’s user support and training activities

Following the successes of the first phase of the European Commission Copernicus programme, EUMETSAT is continuing and expanding its offer of data access services, marine data products, as well as marine training activities and user support services, under phase two. EUMETSAT operates the Sentinel-3, Sentinel-6 and Jason-3 satellites, and provides level-1 and level-2 marine data products for ocean colour, sea surface temperature, and altimetry science and applications. User support services include data access, customisation, and visualisation platforms, web-based technical information about products, as well as a helpdesk available to answer a full range of user queries on the products and their use. Interactive training activities are designed to accommodate a diverse range of audiences, both research and operational, putting trainee needs and interests at the centre of learning objectives. A focus on co-development of resources and participant-led learning interventions allows participants to tailor their own experiences towards development of the skills and knowledge that will help them in their own applications and work tasks. Building on four years of successful general courses, EUMETSAT now seeks to develop further specialised training and advanced courses for the marine community. This poster will showcase existing services and resources, and provide information on planned training events for 2022 and beyond. It will expand on our training approaches and provide further information on opportunities for collaboration with the wider marine community, during the UN ocean decade.
