Summer School Organization

  • The School includes lectures covering overviews of the recent ESA Sentinel missions, Earth System
    Modeling, Data Assimilation, as well as hands-on data processing practical exercises.
  • The one-week course aims at providing students with integrated end-to-end perspectives, ranging
    from analysis and measurement techniques to operational applications, at different working scales.
  • In-field exercises will be organized to collect data through ad-hoc instrumentation: spectral
    measurements, drone imagery, proximal sensor on tractors, etc. Samples’ collection for testing in
    proximity (weather permitting) of scheduled acquisition of Sentinel data is also planned.

The school is open to early career scientists or employers, such as Ph.D. students, young postdoctoral scientists, technicians specialized in Earth Science disciplines, wishing to expand and improve their knowledge and skills on EO in Agriculture.

Participation is limited to a maximum of 20 students: a selection based on CVs and motivation letters will be applied.
