RUS Copernicus organises a full day hands-on training session focussing on the processing of Sentinel-3 data to monitor an upwelling event in the ocean.

The Sentinel-3 constellation is composed of two identical satellites, which aim at quantifying large-scale surface (both ocean and land) colour and temperature phenomena, as well as at measuring accurately the oceans and inland water bodies elevation.

Volcanic eruptions, as one of Earth’s most dramatic and violent agents of change, can drastically alter land and water for kilometres around a volcano. 99 % of the gas molecules emitted in a volcanic eruption are water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). The remaining 1 % comprises small amounts of hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, and other minor gas species (USGS).
