CEOS SAR Workshop 2004


In the framework of the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) Working Group on Calibration and Valida-tion, a SAR Workshop was held at the Edwin-Scharff-Haus, Ulm, Germany from 27-28 May 2004 coinciding in part with and providing an extension to the EUSAR 2004 conference.


The SAR workshop was coordinated by the European Space Agency


The objective of the workshop was to provide an open forum for the presentation and discussion of current and future is-sues related to the calibration and validation of SAR imagery.


The workshop took the format of formal presentation sessions related to specific topics for which seed questions were formulated by the session chairmen. At the end of each presentation session the responsible chairmen initiated a discussion based on the seed questions. The participants to the session attempted to either agree an answer, make recommendations made or propose ways forward for each seed question.
