The advanced course will provide a substantial and balanced introduction to the basic theory and applications related to ocean remote sensing. It will be organised around the following main components:
- Theoretical fundamentals of Optical, Thermal and SAR Ocean remote sensing, focusing on use of ESA and Third Party Mission data and products
- Practicals using existing software tools (BEAM, BRAT, SARTool, Bilko) and complementary datasets from ESA for the interpretation of signatures from EO data and their transformation into geo-physical products
- EO data processing and product demonstration for practical monitoring applications in open oceans and coastal zones
The training course will include formal lectures by leading scientists as well as hands-on practical exercises allowing students to work with SAR, Optical/Thermal and Radar Altimeter data.
The team of lecturers will be composed of Principal Investigators and Professors from leading universities and research institutions.
