Within the framework of the Dragon 4 Cooperation Programme, a joint collaboration between the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), ESA and NRSCC are providing a series of advanced thematic training courses on remote sensing applications hosted by university and research institutions in P.R. China. The first of such courses was held in 2016 on atmospheric applications and the 2nd in 2017 was on land applications. In 2018 as part of this initiative, Ph.D. students, post-doctoral and research scientists from P.R. China and other Asia Pacific countries interested in ocean and coastal remote sensing applications are invited to attend a 6-day advanced training course in the subject. The course will be hosted by Key Laboratory for Geo-environment Monitoring of Coastal Zone of the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geo-information, Shenzhen University (GEMCO, SZU), P.R. China.


The objectives of this advanced Dragon training course are:

To stimulate and support the exploitation of Copernicus Sentinels, ESA, TPM and Chinese EO data for ocean applications

Introduce available software tools and methods for processing and product development for ocean applications using these satellite and other geo-spatial data

The training course is devoted to applications of ESA EO data and information retrieval for China seas using optical, IR, SAR and radar altimeter data. The following disciplines and subjects will be covered.


Current and future Chinese and ESA missions for ocean remote sensing including Explorers, Sentinels 1,2 & 3 and GF-3 SAR

Teaching of remote sensing principles in ocean colour, Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and geo-physical parameters retrieval from SAR and RAs

Validation of geo-physical parameters

Exploitation of instruments’ synergy

Advances in remote sensing over China seas

EO and other data / model assimilation & Essential Climate Variables

Practical Sessions

Data access and handling

Usage of software tools for examining data sets from the Chinese and European EO-missions

Interpretation of signatures from these instruments and their transformation into geo-physical products
