Fwd: Registration Open - Remote Sensing Summer School
is now open for the following Summer School:
Sensing for Polar Scientists, University of Reading, 20th – 22nd July 2011
The UKPN, in partnership with the National Center
for Earth Observation, the Earth Observation technology cluster, and ESA, are
proud to present a 3 day summer school aimed at early doctoral students working
in Polar or cryospheric remote sensing.
Modern remote sensing techniques have
improved our understanding of the cryosphere, allowing for observation of large
areas (e.g. the Arctic Ocean, Greenland, or the Antarctic Ice Sheet) and
facilitating studies of glaciers in remote and/or rugged zones (e.g. Patagonia
& the Himalaya). A staggering variety of Earth observation methods have
been used to study the cryosphere, and research frontiers continue to press
We aim to introduce a variety of new
techniques to those at the beginning of their academic career. Sessions will
include a mixture of lectures and practicals. Practical sessions will either be
self led, with the day’s speakers on hand to provide guidance, or led by
demonstration. Planned sessions include: Satellite Remote Sensing of the Poles,
including the Cryosat mission; Lidar Remote Sensing, Integrated modeling and
Earth Observation & open source Remote Sensing & GIS tools.
Accommodation & food for participants is
provided, but you are expected to cover your own travel costs to & from
Reading, furthermore, each participant will be expected to present a post about
their current research or recent work.
Places are limited to 25 people, so register
early to avoid disappointment. Registration closes at the end of May, after
which successful applicants will receive an email confirming registration.
