Advanced Webinar: Radar Remote Sensing for Land, Water, & Disaster Applications

07 - 16 August 2018

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course overview:

A limitation of optical satellite remote sensing is that it depends on cloudless, well-illuminated areas to produce quality data. This is especially problematic for collecting data during nighttime or when there is cloud cover. Radar is an ideal sensor to study the surface of the Earth because of its ability to "see" through clouds regardless of day or night conditions. In addition, the radar signal can penetrate through the vegetation canopy and provide information about conditions underneath, such as flooding. Techniques such as interferometry can track surface deformation on the order centimeters, such as ground movement caused by earthquakes.

This webinar series builds on ARSET's previous webinar: Introduction to Synthetic Aperture Radar. The training will focus on different radar approaches and techniques including amplitude, time-series, polarimetry, and interferometry for mapping and monitoring disasters and land cover. Attendees will apply these techniques to map land cover and land use change, deforestation, flooding, crop monitoring, and surface deformation for earthquake monitoring.

One session of this course will be broadcast in Spanish (10:00-12:00 EDT, UTC-4), and one in English 18:00-20:00 EDT (UTC-4).

EO Summer School 2018

30 July - 10 August 2018

Organisation: European Space Agency (ESA)

Location: Frascati (near Rome), Italy

Overview:

ESA organises a series of summer schools on Monitoring of the Earth System to promote the exploitation of Earth Observation (EO) data across disciplines, with a specific focus on their assimilation into Earth System models.

The two-week course, held in ESA/ESRIN (near Rome, Italy), aims to provide students with an integrated end-to-end perspective going from measurement techniques to end-user applications. Courses include lectures covering issues related to Remote Sensing, Earth System Modelling and Data Assimilation as well as hands-on computing exercises on the processing of EO data. Keynote lectures on global change issues are also given to discuss the current state of the science of global change and its relationship to society in order to help students appreciate how their specific field fits into a broader scientific and political context. For more information, please see previous programme, news or video.

Monitoring Urban Floods Using Remote Sensing

25 July - 01 August 2018

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course overview:

Urban flooding is already a major risk for cities. Increasing impervious surface area, inadequate storm water drainage, and aging infrastructure all contribute. As a result, growing urban populations will face a greater risk of flooding from extreme weather events. This webinar series will focus on the components of urban flooding that satellite data can track:

  • extreme precipitation
  • flooding
  • waterlogged and ponded surfaces

Using satellite data allows individuals and organizations to develop better plans for handling floods. This can include developing better early warning techniques, better plans for rescue and relief, and more effective long-term infrastructure planning.

There are 2 identical sessions for this course and are provided twice per day to accommodate an International audience at 09:00-11:00 and 18:00-20:00 EDT (UTC-4).

38th Annual EARSeL Symposium

09 - 12 July 2018

Organisation: European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL)

Location: Chania, Greece

Symposium overview:

Climate change, over population, over exploitation of natural resources, all put pressure on the sustainability of most human activities. Many believe that we must drastically change our ways, in order to adapt to the new circumstances. In order to decide on what is required to change, we must investigate the possibilities and to do so, we require data and information. So how can remote sensing methods help fill this gap and lead us to sustainability?

The symposium offers the opportunity to EARSeL and non-EARSeL members to interact and present preliminary research between the dedicated Special Interest Groups (SIG) workshops that are organised every two years. It is a great opportunity for all interested parties to expose their research to an international scientific community. The topics addressed in each annual symposium are related to the EARSeL's Special Interest Groups, as well as contemporary topics of high interest. Submissions and presentations should be focusing on one or more of those topics, as sessions will be mostly organised according to those topics.
