CUAHSI is pleased to partner with the University of Florida to offer a 4-day hands-on workshop on field experiences in microwave remote sensing for agricultural hydrology.

Course Description
This training workshop will provide hands-on experiences with field methods and sensors used in microwave remote sensing for retrieval of soil and vegetation parameters in agricultural land covers. The workshop will be conducted at a field-site of an ongoing season-long experiment to understand microwave signatures of growing vegetation. The field sensors include a suite of ground-based active and passive microwave sensors at L- and C-band; and sensors to observe various components of the water and energy balance.

Specific topics to be covered during the workshop include:
• Passive and active microwave remote sensing in hydrology – science and sensors
• Operation and calibration of passive and active microwave sensors
• Ancillary observations of water and energy balance
• Soil and vegetation sampling protocols and data analysis
• Soil and vegetation parameter retrieval
• Open discussion on class participant interests

Graduate students, post-docs, and professionals working in hydrology and/or remote sensing are invited to attend.
The course will be held at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. Included in the registration fee are course tuition, facilities costs, catered lunches and light refreshments.

Visit the event website for more information and to register.

There are available a very limited number of student travel grants are available on a first come, first served basis to help defray the cost of travel to the course. Contact Elizabeth Tran at etran@cuahsi.org for more information.
