Minimize 3rd Advanced Training Course on Ocean Remote Sensing 2013
Ocean Remote Sensing Course


As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising a series of advanced thematic training courses devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to use data from ESA and operational EO Missions for science and applications development.

Post-doctoral and graduate research scientists, PhD students and EO information users from European countries and Canada interested in ocean remote sensing and its applications are invited to attend a 5 day course which will be held in Cork, at the National Maritime College of Ireland from 23 to 27 September 2013.

Research scientists and students from non-ESA member countries are also welcome to apply and participate in the course subject to space availability.


The advanced ocean training course aims at:

  • Training the next generation of European and Canadian Principal Investigators (PIs)

  • Teaching and demonstrating theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in applications

  • Introducing tools and methods for the exploitation of EO satellite data

  • Stimulating and supporting the exploitation of EO remote sensing data in ocean applications

  • Preparation for the scientific utilisation of data from the Sentinel satellite series
