Introduction to Field Spectroscopy
Tue, 25 Apr 2017, 09:15 – Thu, 27 Apr 2017, 12:30 BST
A 2½-day intensive course for post-doctoral researchers and PhD students
Aims: The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the instrumentation, techniques and best practice in field spectroscopy (FS). The role of FS as a primary research technique and its use to support Earth observation remote sensing will also be covered. Drawing on the resources held by the NERC Field Spectroscopy Facility, the course is designed to better equip users with the skills and know-how to improve applications for support, measurements made in the field and the analysis of the data. The course will be delivered by staff at the Field Spectroscopy Facility.
Who should attend: The course will be of interest to first year PhD students or post-doctoral researchers embarking on research projects where the use of FS instruments and data are planned. It will also be of benefit to proposers to the NERC Airborne Research Facility, especially those hoping to take advantage of the hyperspectral capabilities of the AISA Fenix system.
Cost: The course is free to UK registered postgraduate students and academics. Participants will need to fund their own travel and accommodation during their stay in Edinburgh.
