Extended Application deadline : 30th September 2016

The number of participants is limited and subject to selection of application


The Ocean Virtual Laboratory project is organising the 2nd Multi-Sensor Synergy Training, focused on introducing new, efficient ways of satellite data processing and exploitation. Participants will get strong background in remote sensing, learn how to obtain and work with data from the state-of-art operational space missions.


To discover and analyse, via the OVL platform, the synergy between various Ocean remote sensing datasets in the combination with model output and in-situ data.


  1. Altimetry remote sensing
  2. SAR remote sensing
  3. Salinity remote sensing
  4. Ocean Color remote sensing
  5. Infrared remote sensing
  6. Python
  7. OVL Web GUI
  8. Presentation of following plugins:
    • Fusion
    • Propagation
    • Pan-sharpening
    • Gap-Filling
    • Noise filtering


Dr. Fabrice COLLARD, Dr. Anton KOROSOV, Pr Johnny Johannessen, Pr. Alexandru ISAR, Dr. Mirek DARECKI, Marta Konik and Corina Nafornita.

Exploring synergies amongst Ocean Remote Sensing datasets, Ocean Surface roughness (SAR sentinel-1) and Sea Surface Temperature (VIIRS denoised) are represented.


The number of participants is limited and subject to selection of application.
Applications must be sent before the 30th of September.
Notification of acceptance will be sent via e-mail at the beginning of October.
