- Soil Moisture from Space | March 6 – 31, 2023 | Online course with live-chat | This online course will provide participants with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge on electromagnetic radiation and its interaction with materials, (passive) radiometry and thermal emission, and (active) radar equation, backscattering and SAR image processing. It will introduce radiative transfer model (also called Tau-omega for passive microwave for land) and water-cloud model (active), as well as corresponding retrievals of soil moisture.
Month: November 2022
- Hyper-Temporal Mapping of Agro-Ecosystems & Assessing Land Suitability | February 6 – March 3, 2023 | Online course with live-chat | From early 2000 onwards, the availability of high-quality Hyper-Temporal (HT) EO, has created an enormous number of additional possibilities to map and detect changes as required to monitor impacts. Use of the dimensions “space & time” now lets us study and work on issues that earlier remained “out-of-reach” and remained “unanswered”.
- Face to Face course on Vegetation and Drought Monitoring from Space | January 23 – 27, 2023 | CRASTE-LF, Rabat, Morocco | A 5-day training to learn how to tackle the challenges of Food Security by exploiting satellite observations to monitor the occurrence and impacts of droughts on agricultural productivity at various spatial scales.
October 2022 was a busy month for the EO AFRICA R&D Facility, have a look at our activities during that month:
- Flood Mapping with Sentinel-1 data | December 6, 2022, 14:00 CET | Online webinar with live-chat | This webinar will focus on the importance and use of Sentinel-1 SAR data for flood mapping. With Sentinel-1 SAR data, we can map and analyse the affected flooded areas over a region, that may be not easily accessible, and even compare them with the official flood maps available.
