Oil Spill Mapping with Sentinel-1

Undefined

This webinar provides the basics of image processing for oil spill mapping. It demonstrates how to access the RUS Service and how to download, process, analyse and visualize the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites. The ESA SNAP Sentinel-1 Toolbox will be employed to demonstrate the methodology to map an area affected by this type of pollution.

Scientists analysis of radar scans from satellites provides new data on the consequences of the earthquake that affected the central part of Italy on October 30th.

Italian experts have used radar imagery from Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellites to detect considerable east-west and vertical displacements of the ground in areas like Montegallo, Norcia and Castelluccio.
