ENVISAT ASAR Training Course

 February 25, 2008 - March 7, 2008
 Hanoi, Vietnam

From 25 February to 07 March 2008 ESA organised an ASAR training course in Hanoi, Vietnam with the following objectives:

  • To train Vietnamese professional engineers and scientists on the state of the art in remote sensing (focussing on radar)
  • To enable a better understanding of the key concepts of the ESA Envisat missions, in particular with respect to the applications enabled by the ASAR instrument for environment, vegetation monitoring, hazard mapping, topography and subsidence monitoring
  • To provide hands-on experience with techniques (and tools) used for the exploitation of ERS and Envisat data, including radar interferometry
