Lecturing in the course as the resource person

I presented 8 theoretical lectures and three practical workshops for four days. A group of 35 trainees who were the experts and researchers of the relevant remote sensing and GIS authorities, organizations and academic sector holding PhD and MSc degrees in remote sensing, image processing, electronics, radar technology, computer, communications attended the course.

The course was aiming to introduce SAR techniques, the interpretation of SAR images and use of SAR data for various environmental applications. It was planned to equip the participants with the basic principles of Radar Remote Sensing (specifically Synthetic Aperture Radar-SAR) and its imaging techniques focusing on environmental assessment.

The topics performed by me is listed as below:
