Course Summary

Why to enroll this course?

Welcome to the EUMETSAT course on monitoring the oceans from space.

And so instead of going out to individual places, we can have satellites orbiting overhead, watching the oceans for us constantly.

And now more than ever, established systems of satellites are watching the oceans.

We need to understand how we interact with the marine environment and how we impact it in order to preserve these sorts of activities for the future.

And that's very intimately connected to the biology of our oceans, which has lots of applications that we can use to help people.
