NOAA CoastWatch understands the importance of outreach and education. We believe face-to-face interaction with the ocean community allows us to distribute higher quality products to meet the needs of our users. As well, establishing communications with teachers provides them with additional resources for promoting environmental literacy. Therefore, CoastWatch exhibits at a variety of ocean science and education conferences each year. Below are the conferences currently planned, as well as a few tutorials on ocean remote sensing.
If you have any suggestions for conferences or questions on the tutorials, please send them to CoastWatch.firstname.lastname@example.org.
