International Training Course on “RADAR Remote Sensing and Image Processing”
21–24 December 2015, Karachi, Pakistan
As a resource person I contributed to the International Training Course on “RADAR Remote Sensing (Synthetic Aperture Radar, SAR) and Image Processing” organized by the Institute of Space the (IST) in collaboration with Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) from 21st to 24th December 2015 at the National Center for Remote Sensing and Geo-Informatics (NCRG) in Karachi, Pakistan.
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:
