ISRO has invited registrations from interested students and professionals for a one-day free course on Satellite Altimetry for River Monitoring which is scheduled to be held on 17 March 2021. The workshop will be conducted by Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Dehradun. The institute has delivered several free online courses and workshops of ISRO over the past year, as part of the organisation’s outreach programme.
Satellite altimetry is basically a technology that can yield a lot of information especially regarding rise of water levels in seas and rivers through measurements attained by the time taken by a radar pulse to travel from the satellite antenna to the surface and back to the satellite receiver. The technology has various other applications such as determination of rain rate and wind speed over large water bodies among others. Participants who wish to acquire knowledge on the subject may register for the one-day free course on IIRS.
