ESA/CSO Radar Remote Sensing Course
27-31 October 2008


On 27-31 October 2008 ESA and the Czech Space Office (CSO) jointly organised a training course in Radar Remote Sensing, held in the Charles University in Prague. The objectives of the course were to train Czech and PECS professional engineers and scientists on the state of the art in radar interferometry (InSAR), both processing and applications: topography and ground displacement measurements. The other objective was to provide hands-on experience with techniques and software used for interferometric processing with examples and exercises.
