Due to the precautions taken by the Romanian authorities in order to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus, this closed event will be held online.

Every year, large forested areas are cleared out all over the world due to different driving forces and precise monitoring of these activities is required to reduce their negative impact. The Copernicus progamme provides a unique opportunity to quickly map the ever-changing forests and provides regular updates on their condition at a range of spatial and temporal resolutions.

Our training session will focus on a case study over the Chaco region in the north of Paraguay. We will employ the RUS working environment to monitor on-going deforestation using Ground Range Detected (GRD) products from the Sentinel-1 satellite and we will also show you how to access the RUS Service and how to download, process, analyse and visualize the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites.

This closed event is organised by the RUS Copernicus service, jointly with the University of Bucharest, Romania, and the CopernicusEyes on Earth” Roadshow. It will be presented as an online hands-on session using RUS virtual machines
