Future Earth observation scientists: learn about using satellite data for science and applications development. An ESA series of advanced thematic training courses in remote sensing applications was held in Krakow, Poland last month. Those who were not able to attend can now watch the video replays of the presentations and discussions. The course aimed to train the next generation of European and Canadian Principal Investigators by introducing the available tools for taking advantage of Earth-observing satellites. The week-long event stimulated and supported the exploitation of ESA and Third Party Mission remote sensing data for land applications.
