For the Sentinel-3 OLCI/SLSTR and MERIS/(A)ATSR workshop ( http://www.sen3symposium.org/ ) which took place at ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, in October 2012, several documents were created which present BEAM and some of its features.
This paper was written as a tutorial for "Master de Teledetecion" course at Universitat de Valencia.

This tutorial provides an example on how batch processing can be achieved with BEAM and the GPT (Graph Processing Tool) command-line interface. Even though the provided example can be improved at multiple points it gives you a good starting point to write your own scripts.
This video tutorial shows the creation of a customised (Envisat MERIS) cloud mask using VISAT. Within the tutorial the following features are demonstrated.

The intention of this tutorial is to enable programmers to exploit the capabilities of the BEAM Java libraries. You will learn how to implement a simple algorithm using the BEAM Java API (Application programming interface), then convert the code into a BEAM operator plug-in and at the end integrate it into BEAM VISAT. The tutorial also shows options of how existing non-Java code can be linked to the BEAM-DIMAP format or the new Java 1.6 scripting interface.
Also two older BEAM 3.7 tutorials for Java developers are currently available:
The BEAM Java Tutorial is for Java developers wishing to use the BEAM Java API in their own programs. The tutorial has been put into practice as a hands-on training during the MERIS & AATSR Symposium at ESRIN/Frascati (20.09.2005). It covers the following topics:
Additional tutorial material:
The BEAM Eclipse Tutorial focuses on the VISAT plug-in development. The tutorial is especially useful for developers using the Eclipse open-source IDE, since it shows in detail how to set-up a Java project which depends on the BEAM API. The steps are generally the same for any other Java IDEs such as IntelliJ IDEA or NetBeans.
