RUS Webinar: Sea Ice monitoring using Sentinel-1 data
April 27 @ 14:30 - 16:00 CEST
Update: The webinar (originally scheduled for Tuesday 30 March) has been postponed to Tuesday 27 April 2021.
This webinar will show how to create sea ice concentration maps from Copernicus Sentinel-1 using snappy and Jupyter Notebooks.
The Copernicus Sentinel-1 SAR provides invaluable information both in bad weather conditions and during polar nights. Typically, SAR images were/are analyzed by ice analysts in operational centers for manual classification of ice types and drawing of ice charts. This procedure, of course requires a significant effort and human power; therefore, a number of automated and semi-automated algorithms have been developed for dual-polarization C-band SAR image segmentation and ice/water classification; for retrieval of ice concentration; for classification of several ice types.
This webinar will concentrate on the retrieval of sea ice concentration using texture analysis in the form of Gray-Level Co-occurrence Matrices (GLCMs) and supervised classification trained with existing ice chart data. It will end with a Q&A session.
Apply from Monday 15th of March 2021 – Tuesday 27th of April 2021
