8th Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing
05 April 2018
The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an event for Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing, dedicated to training the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from EO missions (e.g. the Copernicus Sentinels) for science and applications development.
This course is part of ESA's EO Science for Society – Scientific Exploitation element of EOEP-5 (i.e. the fifth cycle of ESA's Earth Observation Envelope Programme).
Application submission is open until the deadline of 08 June 2018.
PhD students, Post-Doctoral Research scientists and the users from European countries and Canada are invited to apply to the 5-day course which will be held at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom, from 10 to 14 September 2018. Research scientists and students from all other countries are also welcome to apply, subject to availability of spaces.

When we think of climate change, one of the first things to come to mind is melting polar ice. However, ice loss isn't just restricted to the polar regions. According to research published today, glaciers around the world have lost well over 9000 gigatonnes (nine trillion tonnes) of ice since 1961.
