Data Visualization of Marine Met data (using FERRET)

Category: 2018
Data visualization is the science of describing the significance of data by placing it in a visual context. In the current scenario it is very useful for dealing with marine met data as patterns, trends and correlations that might go undetected in text-based data can be exposed and recognized easier with data visualization software. The current course will demonstrate the use of open source software FERRET for generation of NetCDF data and visualize various types of plots, save and reuse them at a later stage. The course is designed to be a mix of both practical and theoretical sessions. Aims and Objectives Provide an exposure to Data Visualization using FERRET. Generation of scripts to visualize various types of data sets (1D, 2D, 3D etc). Perform data analysis, generate added value prod…

Integrated Data Analysis for Upwelling Studies

Category: 2017
Upwelling is an oceanographic feature that is very important to the ocean ecosystem. It brings high nutrient water to the surface and the impact is noteworthy to the ocean productivity. This nutrient-rich water will encourage a phytoplankton bloom that is ultimate base for large animal population in the food chains, including fish, mammals and sea birds. Although this coastal upwelling regions covers relatively small areas of the ocean surface, they contribute roughly 50 percent of the world’s fisheries landings.
