The European Space Agency is organising the 2nd Advanced Course on Radar Polarimetry which will be held in ESA ESRIN, Frascati, Italy on 21-25 January 2013.

Post graduate, PhD students, post-doctoral research scientists and users from European countries and Canada interested in Radar Polarimetry and its applications are invited to attend a 5-day course on the subject.

Research scientists and students from all other countries are also welcome to apply and participate to the course, subject to space availability.

Participation is limited to a maximum of 60 students and subject to selection of application.

No participation fees will be charged but participants are expected to finance their own travel and accommodation expenses. The official language of the course is English.


The main objectives of the course are to:

  • Train the next generation of European and Canadian Principal Investigators (PIs)
  • Explain theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in applications
  • Introduce available tools and methods for the exploitation of dual polarization and fully polarimetric data
  • Provide first-hand and up-to-date information on the state of the art in Radar Polarimetry and Polarimetric SAR Interferometry.
