Description:
The topic of TAT 2020 (TAT-8) is “Earth Observation of Land Cover/Land Use Change in the Era of Big Data”. Lectures and training activities will be focused on the use of EO data for monitoring changes on the Earth’s surface (e.g. due to forest fires or floods) and respective changes on the LC/LU (e.g. urban areas, agricultural areas, forests) by using different types of sensors. The first part shall deal with SAR data – Sentinel-1 mission. Applications of SAR data in the ecosystems dynamics will be presented during theoretical and practical sessions. The second part of TAT-8 will be thematically focused on the new trends in optical remote sensing techniques, with emphasis on Landsat-8 and Sentinel-2 missions. The state-of-the-art advanced methods of Earth observation shall be presented and discussed by leading experts from Europe and the USA. Technologies, tutorials and data from ESA and NASA missions shall be presented and practically exercised within hands-on training.
Targeted Audience:
Participants are expected to be (a) Early-career scientists and engineers and (b) Ph.D. and M.Sc.students with advanced skills and research experiences in remote sensing and/or land cover/land use. Only applicants from Central and Eastern Europe, Baltic States, SCERIN countries and the Mediterranean region will be considered. Participants will be selected jointly by the TAT Coordinating Committee. Only selected participants will be contacted. Successful applicants will be informed via e-mail by April 6, 2020.
