Application deadline: 13 May 2022
The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an Earth Observation (EO) training course in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Latvia, the Institute of Environmental Solutions and Riga Technical University.
The course will take place from 27 June – 1 July 2022 at the premises of the Riga Technical University, Faculty of Materials Science and Applied Chemistry.
The training is designed to promote and disseminate EO data and information-based solutions in a variety of scientific and industrial fields. The programme will provide theoretical information followed by practical computer exercises, and will feature the use of Copernicus Sentinel-1 data (SAR sensor) and Copernicus Sentinel-2 data (optical sensor).
The course is intended for researchers, students, PhD students and young professionals who use EO technology within their research or work and want to improve their knowledge of remote sensing. Preference will be given to applicants from Latvia and from other Baltic countries.
- Introduction to ESA EO missions;
- SAR & optical data for land cover applications, including climate change impact;
- SAR & optical data for forestry, including climate change impact;
- SAR & optical data for agriculture, including climate change impact;
- InSAR data, including terrain motion due to gas;
- SAR for ship detection;
- Integrated applications (TDB).
The language of the course is English. Registration to the course is free. Participation is limited and subject to a selection process.
