Description: 

The Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing – EO and AI for Forestry aims at:

  • Training the next generation of scientists and professionals on remote sensing for land surfaces, with the focus on forestry
  • Explaining the theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in forestry applications
  • Introducing tool and methods for the exploitation of EO satellite data, in particular the Sentinels
  • Stimulating the exploitation of EO and AI in the domain of forestry
  • Demonstrating cloud-based, large-scale processing (Forestry Thematic Application Platform)

The training will include theory and hands-on sessions on the following topics:

  • Introduction to the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 missions and their performance
  • Introduction to ESA BIOMASS mission
  • Natural disturbances of forests
  • Forest cover monitoring and change detection with optical and SAR remote sensing
  • Forest fires detection with optical and thermal remote sensing
  • Deforestation and forest degradation
  • PolInSAR and TomoSAR for forests
  • Forest structure and biomass retrieval using SAR
  • Accuracy in forest mapping
  • S2 and Landsat timeseries for forests monitoring
  • EO Browser
  • AI for forests
