GR4S Summer School in Modeling in Microwave and Optical Remote Sensing

June 29, 2020

You are invited:

2020 IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society Summer School (GR4S)
Modeling in Microwave and Optical Remote Sensing
Beijing Normal University (China), 13th – 14th July 2020

IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, Beijing Normal University, State Key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science


The 2020 IEEE GRSS Summer School (GR4S) on “Modeling in Microwave and Optical Remote Sensing” will be held in Beijing, China. It will be merged into the tenth Beijing Normal University Summer School on “Land Surface Satellite Data Inversion and Applications”.


Remote sensing using Earth-orbiting satellites, is one of the most effective tools for providing data that help researchers address global issues. In the past few decades, advances in remote sensing technology have greatly enhanced the potential applications of satellite data in many fields, and various models have been developed to transfer the raw satellite data into high-level products. This year’s IEEE GR4S in Beijing will offer to the attendees an opportunity to gain excellent introductory knowledge in various remote sensing data processing and models.

The focus will be on Masters, PhD students and early scientists dealing with remote sensing and geosciences topics. The summer school is a contribution by the GRSS towards human capital development internationally, with a further objective of attracting the next generation of practitioners – today’s students – to become aware of GRSS and its benefits.
