Other Ocean-Colour Courses

This is an intensive four-week, cross-disciplinary, graduate-level course in Optical Oceanography held at the University of Maine’s Ira C. Darling Marine Center. The course is held every 2-3 years (funding dependent). The course is sponsored by NASA and the University of Maine, with the goal of preparing a new generation of oceanographers trained in the use of optics to study the oceans.  This years course will take place from 3 June – 28 June 2019, at the Darling Marine Center in Maine, USA. For further details see the full announcement at:  http://ioccg.org/ocean-optics-summer-class-june2019/

For marine scientists who have modest or no prior experience with satellite remote sensing techniques. Strong emphasis is given to ocean color remote sensing and the use of NASA’s SeaDAS software.  The Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Program (OCB) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has offered to provided financial support for up to five highly qualified participants to this training program.

This three day introductory satellite course is held every August at the University of Washington in Seattle.  A major goal of the course is to provide scientists who are not regular users of satellite data with the knowledge and tools they need to incorporate satellite data into their research and management projects.


The 10 month training programme takes place in Germany each year. Scholars will receive training in core research skills (project design, implementation, analysis and presentation) and specialized topics including remote sensing, ocean-atmosphere interactions & modelling. A full scholarship will be provided by the NF-POGO CofE covering travel, accommodation, tuition and a modest allowance. Deadline for applications is 9th March 2018.  For further information see: https://www.awi.de/en/about-us/sites/helgoland/visiting-scientists/centre-of-excellence-nf-pogo.html
