WERA Operators Seminar - Get access to the WERA world!


 September 25 - 29, 2017

Kaltenkirchen, Germany

This 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 day of the seminar will 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 second day is reserved for the introduction to the WERA DataManager and DataViewer. You will get information on the software concept, data handling and the different applications.

The third day will be used for networking and exchange with WERA users. The whole group will visit one of the COSYNA WERA sites at the German North Sea coast when weather conditions will allow to do so.
