Minimize Programme and Course material

The advanced course provides a substantial and balanced introduction to the basic theory and applications related to land remote sensing. It is organised around four main components:

  • Theoretical fundamentals of Optical, Thermal and SAR remote sensing, focusing on exploitation of ESA and Third Party Missions and products;

  • EO land applications lectures on urban planning, land cover, terrain motion, hazards, forest bio-physical retrievals and regional water balance;

  • Practicals using ESA toolboxes (BEAM, NEST and POLSARPRO), 3rd party sw and complementary datasets from achieved and simulated satellite data;

  • EO data processing and product demonstration for land resources monitoring

The training course includes formal lectures by leading scientists as well as hands-on computing exercises exposing students to both SAR and Optical/Thermal remote sensing. Practicals will exploit EO data from the ERS, Envisat, Explorers, TPM and national missions as well as simulation data from the upcoming ESA's Sentinels.

Lecturers

The team of lecturers is composed of Principal Investigators and Professors from leading universities and research institutions.
