International Geoscience and Remote Sensing (IGARSS) 2020 Summer School
Increase your knowledge of remote sensing theory and practical applications!
Network with other students and young professionals, as well as the summer school instructors who are world-renowned leaders in the field of remote sensing. At this year’s summer school, you will spend four days learning advanced remote sensing applications, with a focus on disasters and volcanic eruptions. Each day will be comprised of seminar lectures and hands-on applications and the final day will include a fieldtrip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You will gain knowledge in thermal imaging, SAR interferometry, and small unmanned aerial systems, as well as analysis techniques for feature extraction, target detection, and mapping. Weather permitting, you will participate in flight tests of drones for precision mapping.
