The NOAA CoastWatch/OceanWatch/PolarWatch program has dramatically increased the number of Satellite Data Training Courses being taught across the US and across NOAA Line Offices from the first class taught by the West Coast Node in 2006.  Most courses consist of lectures and labs with participants bringing a specific project on which to work and get help.  Please email our Help Desk coastwatch.info@noaa.gov with your suggestion/request for a future course.  Subscribe (see page footer) to the CoastWatch list for course notifications.
