The course will provide advanced scientific knowledge on theory and applications for cryosphere remote sensing. It will be organised around five main components:
Presentation of the CryoSat-2, Sentinel-1, -2 and -3 missions

The training course will include formal lectures by leading scientists as well as hands-on computing exercises exploiting real and simulated data for science and application.

Students who successfully complete all aspects of the ESA Earth Observation of the Cryosphere advanced training course, will be eligible to receive 5 ECTS credits from the University of Leeds.
