Course Description

 The SNAP2StaMPS-based Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), SAR Interferometry (InSAR), and Advanced Differential SAR Interferometry training course (PSInSAR).  The course has been designed to teach the fundamental and advanced concepts of SAR and InSAR while also training participants to read, process, and understand SAR/InSAR/MTInSAR data. The program includes a topic for each day that is covered both theoretically and practically. Each topic is intended to teach specific objectives. Application examples are also provided to demonstrate the utility of each topic.The course will include theoretical lectures as well as tutorials. The entire course will be delivered in person, with tutorials based on the use of the SNAP, ArcMap, QGIS, MATLAB, and StaMPS software and real data collected over various areas of the world by the majority of existing satellites (Sentinel-1, TerraSAR-X, COSMO-SkyMed, ALOS, Envisat , and more). Multitemporal data analysis will be explained for different areas and cases.
