SAR Capacity Building Course

 September 5, 2011 - September 9, 2011
 San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina

ESA, CONAE and the Liège Space Center contributed to capacity building of the Argentinean glaciological community in the area of SAR applications to glacier monitoring, in preparation for SAOCOM and in order to foster the exploitation of ESA SAR/ASAR data. The course was held from 05 to 09 September 2011 in the city of San Carlos de Bariloche in the province of Rio Negro, Argentina.

Topics Covered

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems and sensors Polarimetric
