Lectures and practicals will cover a number of different techniques for ocean remote sensing.
Starting from some basic theoretical considerations, the student will then be introduced to the application contexts and, finally, to some quantitative considerations. The school is expected to give participants full awareness on the advanced satellite techniques as well as of their impact on understanding and modelling climate change.
Satellite oceanography. Open-ocean and coastal altimetry. Ocean microwave scattering and simulation. Ocean salinity measurements. Microwave ocean monitoring. Satellite data assimilation in ocean models.
