Introduction to Satellite Remote Sensing

Local/Regional Summer School (virtual mode) | From 15 – 18 June 2021


his Local/Regional summer school will be held virtually from 15 to 18 June 2021.

The summer school, organized is by UNIBAS-Potenza (Italy) and held in Italian language focus on understanding Satellite Remote Sensing basic concepts and potential applications in support to natural and environmental risks management by regional public administrations (Environmental Agency, Civil Protection, Agriculture and Forestry Authorities, etc.).

The school is addressed to RPAs technical and management staff of Regional Departments and Agency relevant to Environmental and Civil Protection, Agriculture and Forestry, Water Management, etc.

Participants will acquire the basic concepts of satellite remote sensing and of their applications in the fields of their interest.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understanding basic principles of remote sensing from space
  • Understanding potential advantages and limits (cost-benefits analysis) of EO-based solutions in specific working contexts.
  • Getting to know how to access to those Copernicus based services which are relevant to specific working contexts.

Start/End Date

From 15 to 18 June 2021.


This school is addressed to RPAs staff interested/committed to evaluate the introduction of EO-based solutions in their current or future institutional work.

By participating in the school, they will firstly learn the basic elements of satellite remote sensing science and technology that will allow their actual understanding of the EO-based solutions proposed during the study cases as well as to imagine and propose new ones.
