The school of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh is running a 4 day introductory course about radar remote sensing.

The course is designed to provide an introduction to the techniques used in radar remote sensing. With the increasing availability of satellite radar data, it is becoming more important to know how these systems work and to understand what the data can tell you.

The course covers the underlying principles of the measurement techniques and the interaction of microwaves with natural surfaces. The course focuses on the role of satellite radar systems and their application to monitoring aspects of the Earth’s surface, including snow and ice, oceanic wind fields, agriculture and forestry.
