New ESA Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)
The new ESA Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) I've been involved with has now gone live. The MOOC is a free, 5 session course of 2-3 hours a wekk, providing an introduction to monitoring of climate with satellites. It's aimed at policy makers, students, and anyone with a general interest in climate and so it's not technical. I was involved as one of the presenters, but don't let that put you off - some of the other bits are excellent. Please circulate to anyone you think might be interested. There's some really interesting bits on the solid earth, fires, the cryosphere, oceans, atmosphere and then other services which depend on EO data.
The course information page is here https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/climate-from-space and you can see some clips from our trip to the Amazon in the trailer below (e.g. at 2:19 - 2:30).
