WGCapD Webinar Series: Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Data Processing & Applications

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

SAR remote sensing provides a new dimension for measuring various bio-geophysical parameters of the features on Earth surface. SAR sensors are advantageous in comparison to optical remote sensing because of their day/night capabilities and penetration through even dense cloud cover.

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite imagery training in Gabon

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

The aim of the workshop was to build capacity in processing and analyzing the SAR imagery in East Africa and Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries. It was attended by 17 participants from Rwanda, Cote d'Ivoire, Senegal, Tunisia, Morocco, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria and Gabon.  Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is an active form of remote sensing that does not rely on the sun to acquire images.

Bolivia: Recommended Practice by Ukraine RSO used in International Charter activation

A Recommended Practice elaborated by UN-SPIDER's Regional Support Office in Ukraine, was used by to create maps in a recent activation of the International Charter: Space and Major Disasters for the Plurinational State of Bolivia.

The mechanism was triggered on 25 February 2015 after heavy floods started affecting the northern part of the country. The flooding had been caused by accumulating rainfall since January, causing the River Acre to overflow.

How satellite radar can detect slight surface movements on Earth

Phlegraean Fields monitored by Sentinel-1 (Image: ESA)

Earth’s changing surface can be closely monitored thanks to the use of satellite radar data. This week at the Fringe Workshop held by the European Space Agency ESA, new advances in the science and applications of Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) were presented.
