Satellite Remote Sensing


Wed, Jun 10 2015

This is a new online course on satellite remote sensing made available by the European Space Agency. The course allows exploring our planet from space and learning how Earth observation is used to monitor climate change. 

In this free online course, you will join leading experts and scientists from ESA and key European research centres, to explore the science that underpins Earth observation. You will look at recent and current satellite missions that are providing an archive of essential data, and find out how this data is used in local and international policy and planning.


This course is designed for people who want to learn more about Earth observation, climate change and monitoring climate from space. The course can also help decision makers, policy makers, educators and communicators, to gain a better insight into how satellite data can help them assess the state of our climate and its changes, in order to support climate science, and adaptation and mitigation decisions.
