Hurricane Tracking with Satellite Data

University of Strathclyde via FutureLearn


Analyse satellite data of hurricanes and explore descriptive statistics

Regularly causing major global destruction, hurricanes are intense storms with devastating winds. Space-enabled data allows us to observe, monitor, and track hurricanes from a safe distance. Although easily accessible, large volumes of satellite data have been left untouched due to a lack of skilled data analysts.

On this course, you’ll explore the key concepts of data science required to process, analyse, and interpret large datasets. You’ll use tutorials and case studies to understand the possibilities within these datasets, and learn how to interpret satellite data beyond the course.

This course is for anyone interested in learning something about hurricanes or satellites, or those interested in starting to code in Python.
