With four imaging radar systems currently orbiting the Earth, there is now greater need than ever before to understand the fundamentals of imaging radar.
This 4-day course is intended to provide an introduction to the techniques used in radar remote sensing. The course covers the underlying principles of the measurement techniques and the interaction of microwaves with natural surfaces. The course focuses on the role of airborne and satellite imaging radar systems and their application to monitoring aspects of the Earth's surface, including snow and ice, oceanic wind fields, agriculture and forestry.
