Land Training 2018 > PROGRAMME
The course will provide advanced scientific knowledge on theory and applications of land remote sensing. It will be organised around the following main components:
- Theoretical fundamentals and advanced concepts of spaceborne optical, thermal and microwave remote sensing
- Presentation of the Sentinel-1, -2 and -3 missions and relevant ESA Earth Explorer missions
- EO land applications: land use and land cover; change detection and multitemporal analysis; vegetation status and its disturbance; land surface temperature; terrain motion and critical infrastructure monitoring; forest biophysical retrievals; flood and water bodies monitoring; agricultural monitoring; fire detection; urban mapping; monitoring of the hydrological cycle, etc.
- Practicals using ESA toolboxes (e.g. SNAP) and other tools.
The training course will include lectures by leading scientists as well as hands-on computer exercises exploiting real data for science and applications. The poster session organised during the course will give participants an opportunity to present their research results and consult with experts. Presenting a poster at the poster session will be compulsory for all course participants.
