5 September | RUS webinar | Altimetry and Oceanography with the BRAT Toolbox – Part 2

This webinar will be oriented to oceanography. The 27-days repeat cycle of Sentinel-3 will be used to assess the impact of a typhoon event on altimetry estimates. The possibility of generating monthly sea level anomaly (SLA) maps with BRAT will be also discussed as well as the capability of the toolbox to calculate geostrophic currents and the current speed.

During this webinar, you will be introduced to Sentinel-3 SRAL altimetry data and learn how to process the data using the ESA/CNES Broadview Radar Altimetry Toolbox (BRAT).

13 September | RUS training course | Agricultural monitoring with Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data

This half-day tutorial, which will be held on the occasion of  the Applied Geoinformatics for Society and Environment (AGSE) 2019: Digital Landscapes: Chances for Development conference, will demonstrate the usage of Open Tools (ESA SNAP; QGIS; R) available within the RUS environment to run a supervised classification over an agricultural area using Sentinel-1 GRD and Sentinel-2 products. You will be able to choose between two of the most relevant machine learning algorithms used for this purpose: Random Forest and Support Vector Machine (SVM).


30 September - 1 October | IV ESA EARSEL CNR School: Remote Sensing for Forest Fires

On the occasion of the 12th EARSeL Forest Fires SIG Workshop (3-5 October 2019, Rome, Italy) a training will be held with the contribution of RUS on the application of active and passive remote sensing techniques for fire research. It will focus on the use of active and passive Earth Observation (EO) Technologies for fire monitoring.

The purpose of this course is to disseminate and discuss research methods and technologies of active and passive Earth Observation for applications related to forest fires.

The course will focus on the use of optical and radar sensors for active fire mapping, burned area mapping, soil organic matter, soil moisture, fire emissions and time series analysis.

For the practical part, RUS Copernicus Virtual Machines will be used.
