Learn to use the open source satellite data from the first of the Sentinel series, including all-weather images available day and night, able to monitor sea ice and icebergs, map marine oil spills and detect movements of the Earth’s surface.

This two-day course provides Synthetic Aperture Radar theory and hands-on use of the toolbox of the Sentinel-1 satellite. The Sentinel-1 satellites provide a wealth of open source data, with rapid dissemination, covering the globe every six days and carrying a C-band SAR.

This is a hands-on course with practical sessions in computing labs. Attendees should have familiarity with EO concepts such as calibration and/or awareness of common EO data issues necessary to go from a level-1 to a high-level product.

The first morning of the course will cover SAR theory including interferometry. The remainder of the course will be in a computing lab using the Sentinel-1 toolbox developed by the European Space Agency, processing data both via the interface and command line.

“So much data is coming back from Sentinel-1 at fantastic resolutions – for free! When you know how to manage the easy-to-use graphical interface to manipulate the data to your requirements, you can interrogate every single pixel of that data and this course will show you how”
