Webinar Description

The purpose of this data workshop webinar is to introduce participants to airborne field data and how to access and visualize data. We will go over the science motivation of a current NASA mission called ACTIVATE (https://activate.larc.nasa.gov/). There will be activities to expose participants to Python, which is becoming increasingly important for data analysis. Please refer to our first open data workshop summarizing the instrument datasets and the mission concept: https://asdc.larc.nasa.gov/news/activate-2021-open-data-workshop.

Important: To participate in the activities, participants will need a Gmail and Earthdata account. instructions of which to set up are at this website: https://asdc.larc.nasa.gov/news/activate-data-webinar-materials. That site also has slides summarizing in detail all the steps that will be conducted for the activities in the workshop, along with a previous recording of a similar interactive workshop.

Webinar Goals

  1. Motivate the study of aerosol-cloud interactions and the importance of airborne measurements
  2. Be able to use the Google Colaboratory (i.e. Google Colab) environment to examine atmospheric properties derived from both in situ and remote sensing products
