11th International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry and BIOMASS Workshop.
The European Space Agency is organising the 11th International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry, PolInSAR & Biomass.
The workshop will be held at Espaces Vanel Toulouse, France on the following dates: 11th PolInSAR & Biomass Workshop: 19 – 23 June 2023
The event will be preceded by the 7th ESA Advanced Course on Radar Polarimetry from 12 to 16 June 2023.
- Provide a forum for scientific exchange
- Present the latest exploitation results from full-pol airborne and spaceborne systems and assess the state-of-the-art
- Review retrieved bio-geophysical parameters and their accuracy
- Make recommendations for algorithm development and new products
- Support the preparation for ESA and Third Parties full-pol missions exploitation (BIOMASS, NOVASAR-S, RCM, SAOCOM, TerraSAR-L etc.)
- Present innovative polarimetric applications and ideas for future polarimetric mission concepts Report on the status of POLinSAR 2021 recommendations
- Forest Science
- Forest and Carbon Modelling
- International Reporting
- Ground based Measurements for EO cal/val,
- Biomass Mission Science beyond Forestry
Consultation for the Sentinel User Preparation
Support the preparation for ESA and Third Parties full-pol missions exploitation (BIOMASS, NOVASAR-S, RCM, SAOCOM, TerraSAR-L, ROSE-L, Sentinel-1 Next Generation, etc.)
The Workshops shall bring together:
- ESA Principal Investigators, scientists and students working in the field of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry;
- Biomass science, international forest network, UNFCCC REDD+, carbon and climate modelling communities;
- Users of data from current and future SAR missions like SENTINEL-1, BIOMASS, ALOS 2, RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM), NOVASAR-S, SAOCOM, ROSE-L;
- Representatives from National, European and International space and value adding industry.
Participation in the oral and poster programme will be decided by the Scientific Committee following the review of submitted abstracts.
No participation fees will be charged. Participants are expected to finance their own travel and accommodation expenses.
The official language of workshops is English.
