(Registrations closed 20th May 2010)
The 1st FP7 EUFAR Training Course“ADvanced Digital Remote sensing in Ecology and earth Sciences Summer School” (ADDRESSS) will be held at the Balaton Limnological Research Institute (BLRI) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences from August 19th to 28th 2010, Tihany, Hungary
This training course aims to educate and train early-stage researchers and university lecturers (in ecology and environmental geosciences) in the use of airborne LIDAR and hyperspectral imaging. Three 3-hour flights with the NERC-ARSF Do 228 equipped with a digital camera, hyperspectral imaging sensor and LIDAR will be part of the course. Participants will be able to design their own flight experiments and visit the instrumented aircraft. Some participants may have the opportunity to perform a research flight on the NERC-ARSF instrumented Do 228 aircraft.
The target audience is early-stage researchers (PhD students and post-docs) in ecology and environmental geosciences, but a limited number of university lecturers (max.5) will also be accepted.
For the early-stage researchers, a strong scientific knowledge base (in physics, geography, geology, biology, chemistry, bio-engineering or civil engineering) and some experience in the use of computer geoinformation software is required to attend this training course.
As part of the application form, participants will be requested to write a short proposal for a three-hour research flight experiment within the planned bounding box.
Participants are requested to bring their own laptop.
From Thursday August 19th to Friday 27th lectures, hands-on practice, workshops, airborne and field measurements are planned (Draft timetable)
During the workshop, each of the three working groups has the opportunity to design a flight plan for a 3-hour scientific flight (from take-off to landing) with the help of the NERC ARSF crew.
On Saturday 28th the three working groups will present their experiment and preliminary results.
The training course will be held from August 19th 2010 to August 28th 2010. Before the end of the training course, the participants will be requested to complete the training course evaluation form.
Scientific reports (to be submitted on-line) from participants are due on December 15th 2010 and will be published on the EUFAR website.
Travel and subsistence expenses will be 100% supported by EUFAR (travel to summer school location, transfers, accommodation in double rooms, meals, etc).
Aircraft tickets must be booked, if practical, at least 2 months before the departure date in order to get the most favourable rate. All travel must be done at the economical rate.
