Objectives Synthetic Aperture Radar SAR data has undoubtedly emerged as a potential data source to be used in different applications, particularly in the areas and regions which face a consistent problem of cloud cover. Moreover, there are quite a number of applications where only SAR data can contribute effectively e.g. ship detection, oil spill monitoring, ice and glacier studies, soil moisture studies, vegetation mass studies, geological structures, hazard mapping, monitoring floods etc. The training course is aimed at capacity building of the participants in SAR data processing, interpretation/analysis and applications. It will focus on various products available through different resolution SAR platforms and their applications.
