Doppler Data Analysis Workshop

Join us for a Training Workshop

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our first training workshop on Doppler data analysis for beginners. Many people are not aware that meteorites can be detected by Doppler radar systems like NEXRAD in the USA, and meteorite professionals use this data to locate meteorite strewn fields!

Doppler data could be a valuable asset on your next hunt, but you can’t access it without the data analysis skills you will learn in our workshop. Although some skill and experience is often needed to separate meteorite detections from other detections, anyone with intermediate computer skills is capable of viewing the data and locating possible meteorite detections.
