Trans-Atlantic Training

Integration of Radar and Optical Remote Sensing in Studying Land Cover/Land Use Change

7-11 June 2018
Zagreb, Croatia

The number of participants to the training is limited.
The deadline for application is 25 of April 2018.
Successful applicants will be informed via e-mail by 30 of April 2018.

The main objective of the Trans-Atlantic Training (TAT) initiative is training activities for students and the early-career scientists in the area of Earth Observation, with an emphasis on on remote sensing of land-cover changes and ecosystem dynamics. The purpose of TAT is to share and discuss advanced research methods and technologies from space during a series of meetings for scientists and students from both Europe and the USA.

The topic of TAT 2018 (TAT-6) is “Integration of Radar and Optical Remote Sensing in Studying Land Cover/Land Use Change”. Lectures and training activities will be focused on the evaluation of ecosystems (e.g. forest disturbances, agricultural land changes and abandonment) by using different types of sensors. The first part shall deal with SAR data – Sentinel-1 mission. Applications of SAR data in the ecosystems dynamics will be presented during theoretical and practical sessions. The second part of TAT-6 will be thematically focused on the new trends in optical remote sensing technics, with emphasis on Landsat-8 and Sentinel-2 missions.
