Satellite cousins have ice covered

16 December 2016

Although not designed to deliver information on ice, ESA's Earth Explorer SMOS satellite can detect thin sea-ice. Since its cousin, CryoSat, is better at measuring thicker ice scientists have found a way of using these missions together to yield an even clearer picture of the changing Arctic.

4th Advanced course on radar polarimetry

30 January - 02 February 2017

Organisations: European Space Agency (ESA)

Location: ESA ESRIN, Frascati, Italy

Workshop Overview:

As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising the 4th Advanced Course on Radar Polarimetry devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit dual and fully polarimetric data for science and applications development.

The main objectives of the course are to:

  • Train the next generation of European and Canadian Principal Investigators (PIs);
  • Explain theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in applications;
  • Introduce available tools and methods for the exploitation of dual polarization and fully polarimetric data;
  • Provide first-hand and up-to-date information on the state of the art in Radar Polarimetry and Polarimetric SAR Interferometry.
