ROSA/ESA/DLR Radar Remote Sensing Course in Bucharest
26-30 October, 2009
From our daily mail. Dániel Kristóf PhD, research fellow of the FÖMI Remote Sensing Centre submitted this Call for participation of PECS countries Hungary and Poland released by the Romanian Space Agency.
"Dear Madam/Sir,
Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) in cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is organizing a five-days intensive radar remote sensing course between 26 – 30 October 2009.
The training course is focusing on radar remote sensing theory and applications. It consists of two main components:
· theoretical fundamentals of radar remote sensing and introduction to SAR applications
· practical sessions using SAR data with focus on TerraSAR-X imagery for applications in water / oil detection and mapping
The course is opened primarily to Romanian students but also to students from other PECS countries (Hungary, Poland). Young scientist and university students who wish to expand and improve their knowledge and skills in the radar remote sensing research are invited to attend the course.
The candidates should have the following qualifications:
mandatory: MsC (or PhD) in Engineering or Physics or Science with knowledge of remote sensing
mandatory: good command of English language
desirable: knowledge of some remote sensing and GIS SW packages
desirable: needing/using GeoInformation for their profession
The students will be selected upon reviewing their CVs and motivation letters (explaining the relevance of this course for their present position) taking into account the qualifications mentioned above and the number of places in the classroom.
Deadline for application submission: 2 October 2009!
