WERA Operators Seminar - Get access to the WERA world!


 September 26 - 29, 2016

Kaltenkirchen, Germany

This four days intensive seminar is an excellent opportunity for potential users or for operators who already work with the WERA system and data on a daily basis to get to know all they need to experience about our Ocean Remote Sensing Technology.

The first two days of the seminar concentrate on the understanding of the physics and technology behind WERA and will give an overview on the system hard- and software structure. Furthermore the basics for site planning will be explained to enable users or consultants to carry out future site planning.

The third day is reserved for the introduction to the WERA DataManager and DataViewer. This lesson will be continued on the fourth day with showing examples for using these tools for quality assurance and trouble shooting.

One day, the whole group will visit a WERA site at the German north sea coast.

The first WERA site in Büsum has formerly been a main component of the German Ocean-Monitoring System OMS.

The sites are 1.5 hours drive to the North Sea coast. Transportation to and back from the site will be organised by Helzel Messtechnik.
