Formation : Introduction to Synthetic Aperture Radar for Applications in Terrestrial Environments

Formation offerte en Anglais

Université Carleton, Ottawa, du 12 au 16 aout 2019

Using data from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites to monitor the state and changing conditions of land can be mystifying, even for those experienced in analysis of optical satellite data. Carleton University’s Department of Geography & Environmental Studies, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and Natural Resources Canada have teamed up to deliver a 5-day course which promises to unlock the world of SAR. Upon completion of this training, participants will be equipped with the skills needed to access, pre-process and analyze SAR data. The course interweaves lectures with hands-on labs. Course Location: Carleton University Loeb Building A200 (1125 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa, ON K1S 5B6) Dates: August 12-16, 2019 Course content: SAR Basics: Understanding polarization, frequency, incident angle and Matrix Algebra for Geographers Where are the data? Accessing SAR data and knowing what to order SAR Polarimetry: Unlocking the power of polarimetry What’s SNAP? Using SNAP software for SAR processing SAR system characteristics and the target: Applying the right data in the right way What’s That? The SAR Trivia Game Interferometric SAR Cool applications of InSAR SAR processing: Leading users through step by step pre-processing of SAR Case studies: Processing SAR data for crop classification and soil moisture estimation Prerequisites: Participants should have a base understanding of remote sensing and image processing. Previous exposure to SAR is helpful, but not mandatory. Target audience: The course material will be broadly applicable to land application users.
