The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an Earth Observation (EO) training course in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

The course will take place from 19 – 23 September 2022 at the premises of the Andoya Space Centre (ASC) in Andenes*, Norway.

Application deadline: 15 July 2022

The training is designed to promote and disseminate EO data and information-based solutions focussing on Arctic Methane and Permafrost. The programme will provide theoretical information followed by practical exercises and will feature the use of Satellite data from different missions together with airborne and ground based data together with process modelling.

The course is intended for researchers, students, PhD students and young professionals who use EO technology within their research or work and want to improve their knowledge of remote sensing.
