Training Workhsop on Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Data

Bridging the gap in SAR processing in Africa

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 Final Report
2 - Pretoria, South Africa: 20 – 26 January, 2017
3 - Libreville, Gabon: 20-24 February, 2017AgendaFinal Report
4- Tshwane, South Africa: 4 - 7 May, 2017Agenda
