Learning outcomes

  • Knowledge and understanding of Operational Oceanography.
  • Tasks involved in Operational Analysis and Forecast methods.
  • Oceanographic Data sources, Quality Control/Quality Assurance, monitoring systems and methods.
  • Tools for visualizing the operational ocean data products.

Target Audience

Target audiences include, but not limited to the following:

  • Ocean and coastal data managers.
  • Researchers intending to use data products for scientific analysis.
  • Research scholars at various universities.
