Field Experiences in Microwave Remote Sensing for Agricultural Hydrology
April 24-27, 2018 || Gainesville, FL
Early Bird Registration Deadline: February 28th
Regular Registration Deadline: March 15th

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 
  *   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<http://www.ufl.edu/> in 
Gainesville, FL. Included in the registration fee are course tuition, 
facilities costs, catered lunches and light refreshments.
