3rd ESA-EARSeL course on remote sensing for archaeology

On the occasion of the workshop “Advances in Remote Sensing for Cultural Heritage: from site detection, to documentation and monitoring” a training will be held on the application of radar remote sensing techniques for archaeological research. The training course will take place from 9 to 11 November. It will focus on the use of SAR intensity for palaeolandscape mapping and InSAR for monitoring the structural integrity of archaeological sites.

The training is primarily intended to provide a practical introduction to the processing of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for archaeological applications. Ideally participants would have some background in remote sensing and data analysis, but the course assumes no prior knowledge of SAR. The training will take place in English.

The deadline for applications is 30 September. Notification of acceptance will be sent by 5 October.
