1st School on "Remote Sensing for Mountains and Glacier Area"

Courmayeur (Aosta), from 17 to 21 June, 2024. Deadline for application: TBC

Versione stampabile

The school aims to approach the study of mountains area by using hyper/multi spectral satellite data introducing also ground based instrumentation for monitoring the glaciers.
During the school, through the collection of radiometric, atmospheric and topographic data from direct measures and proximal sensing (field spectroradiometer, optical, and radar sensors and UAVs), the site will be characterised. The geologic and physiographic description of the site will be explained, and the direct collection of the samples for spectral characterisation will be proposed. The school will introduce the students to the principles of radiometric data processing through guided activities into the handling and understanding of the data collected in the field.
The School is organised in 5 days of activities., starting on Monday 17th June 2024 at 2:00 pm and closing on Friday 21st June at 2:00pm. The school is open to early career scientists or employers, such as Ph.D. students, young post-doctoral scientists, technicians with base knowledge in Earth Sciences and Remote Sensing disciplines, wishing to expand and improve their skills in EO.
