Introduction to water bodies in the Arctic Area (lakes and permafrost). The topics presented refer to the origin of the lakes (glacially formed lakes, old river branches, reservoirs, impact craters from meteorites...) and the different types of lake patterns together with the demonstration of temporal patterns.

Visualization of satellite images providing information on water presence over the area, the color, temperature, level and state of the water in Arctic lakes.

Have a look at our YouTube channel dedicated to our training programme. You will find recordings of RUS webinars focusing on how to access the RUS Service and show how to download, process, analyse and visualise the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites constellation exploiting the ESA SNAP toolboxes.
