School's out: Earth Observation Summer School comes to a close |
10 August 2012
The sixth ESA Earth Observation Summer School wrapped up on 10 August. The two-week course saw 70 students from more than 20 countries worldwide convene at ESRIN, ESA's centre for Earth observation in Frascati, Italy.
The students, mostly PhD students and young postdoctoral scientists, attended daily lectures covering issues related to remote sensing, Earth system modelling and data assimilation.
Jean-Noel Thepaut, Head of Data Division at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, gave a lecture on the use of satellite data for numerical weather prediction. "Summer course students had a great opportunity to interact with Earth observation scientists," he said.
