Description



BACKGROUND


As part of the Earth Observation (EO) Science for Society – Scientific Exploitation element of EOEP-5 program, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organizing an advanced training course on remote sensing of the Cryosphere, devoted to train the next generation of scientists and specialists to exploit EO data for science and applications.


PARTICIPATION


Postgraduate-level, PhD students, post-doctoral research scientists and users from Europe and Canada interested in applications of remote sensing of the Cryosphere are welcome to apply to the 6-day course, held at University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, from 11 to 16 June 2018.


Participants from all other countries are also welcome to apply, subject to availability of places.


FEES


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.

OBJECTIVES


The Advanced Cryosphere Training Course aims at:

- To train the next generation of scientists on Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere;
- To provide an advanced understanding of theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in applications;
- To give hands-on practice with tools and methods for satellite data exploitation as well as fieldwork experience for in-situ cryosphere-related data collection;
- To provide insights of EO challenges/opportunities within the polar context for further studies.
