Summer School: “Processing and visualizing large geospatial data using R, Python and Julia”
OpenGeoHub Summer School is an annual event that has been running at various locations in Europe, North America, and Australia since 2010, inviting researchers and specialists in developing open-source software and open data to help others improve analysis and modeling frameworks.
📅 Dates: 27 August 2023 – 02 September 2023
📍 Location: Adam Mickiewicz University Poznan (Poland)
✍🏾 Applications are open till February 1st 2023.
Training School and Workshop on Dust Aerosol Detection and Monitoring
The training aims to enable participants to be aware of satellite-based, ground-based and model-based products. Participants will also learn more about the applicability and fitness-for-purpose of the respective products.
⚠️ Application deadline: 11 January 2023
EGU23 paid opportunity: are you a researcher in "Emerging techniques for diverse air quality applications in Africa and South/Southeast Asia"?
Shahzad Gani announced an amazing opportunity! Check it out below.
ISU Space Studies Program 2023 open for applications
The ISU Space Studies Program offers an intensive nine-week course hosted each summer in different locations around the world.
From 26 June until 25 August the Space Studies Program will be hosted for the second time in South America (after SSP 2000 in Valparaiso in Chile) and for the first time in Brazil. 🇧🇷
EO College course: "Imaging Spectroscopy for Agricultural Applications"
This course will provide you with the fundamentals of imaging spectroscopy specifically for agricultural applications and gives you access to free data sources, open-source software and hands-on training exercises.
By the end of this course, you should have learned:
🛰️ The benefits of imaging spectroscopy for agricultural applications
🛰️ The physical and chemical factors controlling leaf and canopy reflectance
🛰️ Which biophysical and biochemical variables can be retrieved as “vegetation traits”
🛰️ Some basics of campaign- and sampling design
🛰️ How reference data are acquired in an agricultural context
🛰️ Where you can get imaging spectroscopy data from and what software you could use
🛰️ Which methods to apply in an agricultural context
🛰️ and finally, how to analyze an imaging spectroscopy dataset yourself!
SWOT Satellite: Bringing Earth's Coastlines into Focus
The SWOT satellite’s sharper, clearer view of water levels around the world promises to fill a stubborn observational gap: coastal sea level, the information that can help coastal communities plan for the potentially devastating effects of rising seas.

Training course: “Satellite-based tools for investigating aquatic ecosystems”
The training course will centre on remote sensing of ocean colour, water quality and human health, primary production, physiology and ecology of marine phytoplankton and practical aspects of working with satellite data.
The training will have online (weekly webinars between April and July 2023) and in-person (7-8 Aug 2023) components.
Summer School: Climate Change AI
The Climate Change AI summer school is designed to educate and prepare participants with a background in artificial intelligence (AI) and/or a background in a climate change-related field to tackle major climate problems using AI.
The summer school aims to bring together a multidisciplinary group of participants and facilitate project-based team work to strengthen collaborations between different fields and foster networking in this space.
...and now, a special message for you!
I just want to say thank you! This year was incredible! I started to put more effort into science communication on my Twitter, LinkedIn and created this newsletter just a few months ago and we are more than 3K in total accounts.
Thank you so much for being here and supporting me. I received a lot of kind messages from you and I am sure that I am on the right way. Thank you so much for being a part of this lovely and enthusiastic community that we are creating day by day. You are important.
I wish you all a season’s greetings and best wishes!
Thank you Rafaela! Kudos to a job well done!!
