The course will provide a broad introduction to already existing data sets and products available to the scientific community in climate and environmental change. It will focus on practical and theoretical foundation for the application of remote sensing techniques to identify and monitor climate change and climate change impacts as well as discussions of the underlying drivers of climate change. The course is intended for a broad group of PhD students specializing in climate, agriculture, environmental change and related impacts in particular in tropical climates, but students working outside tropical ecosystems are welcome.
5 Days (Monday to Friday) + preparation
- The IRI data library and INGRID data library data language with applications
- Drivers of climate change
- Monitoring land surfaces
- Space exploration
- Climate change and the human dimension
- The IPCC
- Feedbacks in the climate system
- Global vegetation trends
- Droughts monitored from space
The course will consist of a mixture of seminars, hands on exercises and broad discussion lectures. The hands on exercises will be based on data from the comprehensive data library at IRI, Columbia University and state of the art software and algorithms. During the course, the students will prepare posters illustrating how they can apply the methods and concepts they have been presented for during the course to their own research. The posters will be discussed during a poster session at the end of the course and finally evaluated by the course lecturers.
