The advanced course will provide a substantial and balanced introduction to the basic theory, scattering concepts, systems and advanced concepts, and applications typical to radar polarimetric remote sensing.

The course will include theoretical lectures as well as hands-on computing exercises exposing students to PolSAR and Pol-InSAR data processing for remote sensing applications, illustrating the use of PolSARpro, the ESA Toolbox for exploitation of EO SAR polarimetric data, with a focus on full-pol spaceborne (ALOS, RADARSAT-2, TerraSAR-X) product.

Within the last day of the Course, the status of present and future polarimetric spaceborne missions will be also presented.

The team of lecturers will be comprised of leading scientists coordinated by Prof. Eric Pottier from the University of Rennes1, France.
