IntroductionThe 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.
ObjectivesTo 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.
- Altimetry remote sensing
- SAR remote sensing
- Salinity remote sensing
- Ocean Color remote sensing
- Infrared remote sensing
- OVL Web GUI
- Presentation of following plugins:
- Noise filtering
LecturersDr. 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.
Application: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.
Student Project presentation:Participants are invited to write a short description of their subject of research. The selected projects will be presented during the first day of the course.
