Hands on training and demos on accessing data from ERDDAP, working with netCDF formatted data.

The session will familiarize participants with accessing data from ERDDAP and working with netCDF formatted data using Python. Examples will focus on ocean satellite data distributed by CoastWatch but are applicable to NetCDF files in general and to other types of data accessed through ERDDAP servers.
It will be a mix of demos, group discussions and off-line self-paced work.

The following is a list of possible topics depending on participants’ interests. Tutorials will be selected by the audience using slido polls.
- Overview of CoastWatch and ocean satellite data
- Overview of NetCDF and Panoply
- Accessing and visualizing data through ERDDAP
  1. ERDDAP Introduction
  2. Finding datasets on ERDDAP, Gather information about a dataset
  3. Visualization and download data
