ESA Earth Observation of the Cryosphere Training Course
Event Type: Field Training and Schools
When: 12 September 2016 to 16 September 2016
Where: University of Leeds, England
As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising a new advanced Cryosphere Training Course devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from ESA and operational EO Missions (e.g. the Sentinels) for science and applications development. Post graduate, PhD students, post–doctoral research scientists and users from European countries and Canada interested in Cryosphere Remote Sensing and its applications are invited to apply to the 5 day course which will be held at the University of Leeds, UK from 12 to 16 September 2016. Research scientists and students from all other countries are also welcome to apply and participate to the course subject to space availability.
Post graduate, PhD students, post doctoral research scientists and users from European countries and Canada interested in Cryosphere Remote Sensing are invited to apply to the 5 day course on the subject. Research scientists and students from all other countries are also welcome to apply and participate to the course subject to space availability.
No participation fees will be charged for the training. Participants are expected to finance their own travel and accommodation expenses. The official language of the course is English.
The Advanced Cryosphere Training Course aims at:
- Training the next generation of European and Canadian Principal Investigators (PIs);
- Explaining theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in applications;
- Introducing tools and methods for the exploitation of EO satellite data, in particular from the Sentinels.
Stimulating and supporting the exploitation of ESA EO and Third Party Mission data for remote sensing science and its applications to the cryosphere.
