Trans-Atlantic Training 2022 (TAT-9): A Changing Eastern Europe: New Challenges for Science and Capacity Building in Land Remote Sensing
September 5, 2022 - September 9, 2022
Faculty of Science, Charles University
The purpose of the series of Trans-Atlantic Training (TAT) courses is to disseminate and discuss research methods and technologies from space. The event was organised jointly by ESA, NASA and the Charles University of Prague, in close cooperation with the Regional Information Network for Southern, Central and Eastern Europe (SCERIN). This training was the ninth in the series of TAT courses.
This edition was hosted by the Charles University of Prague, in the Czech Republic, from 5 to 9 September 2022, and had 34 participants, plus a session for local secondary school students and teachers who were given a theoretical and practical introduction to Earth Observation, and the ESA Air Quality Platform.
The programme focused on monitoring and evaluating the impact of unprecedented challenges (e.g. the coronavirus pandemic) on agricultural land, urban areas and food security. The sessions featured the combined use of SAR data (Copernicus Sentinel-1) and optical data (Copernicus Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8).
The course was aimed at early-career scientists and engineers as well as phD/MSc students with advanced skills and research experience in remote sensing and/or in Land Cover/Land Use.
The application was open to nationals of (or those living/working in) all ESA Member States. Applicants from the following regions are particularly encouraged to apply: Central and Eastern Europe, Baltic States, and the Mediterranean region.
