4th ESA Advanced Course on Radar Polarimetry
30 January - 2 February 2017, ESA ESRIN, Frascati (Rome), Italy
As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising the 4th Advanced Course on Radar Polarimetry devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit dual and fully polarimetric data for science and applications development.
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 apply to the 4 day course on the subject, which will be held in ESA ESRIN, Frascati, Italy from 30 January to 2 February 2017.
Research scientists and students from all other countries are also welcome to apply and participate to the course subject to space availability.
No participation fees will be charged for the training but participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses (financial support is not available).
The official language of the training 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.
