eSurge short course on Applying Earth Observation Data to Storm Surge Modelling and Forecasting

 Applications for the eSurge short course on Applying Earth Observation Data to Storm Surge Modelling and Forecasting are now being taken.

This two day course will demonstrate and teach modellers and forecasters how the application of Earth Observation data can enhance their efforts to model and forecast storm surges. It will also give experiential knowledge of how integrating and exploring such data might proceed.
