Training Workhsop on Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Data

Bridging the gap between Optical and SAR processing, especially in developing countries

SAR remote sensing provides a new dimension for measuring various bio-geophysical parameters of the features on Earth surface. SAR sensors are advantageous in comparison to optical remote sensing because of their day/night capabilities and penetration through even dense cloud cover. Since 2016, CEOS WGCapD has provided the following SAR Training Workshops, on data access, awareness, processing, and applications, to users in developing countries:

1 - Lusaka, Zambia: October 10 - 14, 2016 Lessons Learned Report
2 - Pretoria, South Africa: 20 – 26 January, 2017
3 - Libreville, Gabon: 20-24 February, 2017AgendaLessons Learned Report
4- Tshwane, South Africa: 4 - 7 May, 2017Agenda
