Workshop addresses calibration and validation issues
Scientists will get an opportunity to review the performance of existing and planned airborne and spaceborne SAR sensors at the CEOS'99 SAR workshop, to be held in Toulouse, France, between 26 and 29 October 1999.
The following issues will be addressed at the event:
- Science and application requirements;
- Geometry and radiometry;
- Instrument design and new concepts;
- Low-frequency imagery;
- High-resolution imagery;
- SAR processing;
- Calibration device;
- Data-compression techniques.
The workshop will be held in plenary sessions, including selected papers and poster presentations, as well as more focused working sessions allowing for shorter oral presentations on specific topics.
The workshop is being organised by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), within the framework of the Committee of Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) working group on calibration and validation.
