1st ESA Advanced Training Course on Atmospheric Remote Sensing 2008

 September 15, 2008 - September 20, 2008
 The Denys Wilkinson Building, Oxford, UK

The European Space Agency organises a series of regular advanced thematic training courses in Europe. These training courses – initially covering ocean, land and atmosphere applications – are hosted in European Universities, with the host country rotating among the ESA Member States.

The 2008 course was dedicated to training on the exploitation of Earth Observation data from ESA and Third Party Mission instruments for atmospheric applications, and took place in Oxford, UK from 15 to 20 September 2008.

The specific objectives of the advanced atmospheric training course were to:

  1. Stimulate and support the exploitation of ESA EO and Third Party Mission (TPM) remote sensing data for atmospheric applications;
  2. Introduce available tools and methods for the exploitation of ERS, Envisat, and TPM satellite data;
  3. Train the next generation of European and Canadian Principal Investigators (PIs).
