New course “Satellite InSAR Data: Reservoir Monitoring from Space” organised by EAGE

New course by Alessandro Ferretti: “Satellite InSAR Data: Reservoir Monitoring from Space” organised by EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers).

Estimated Article Reading Time: 0 min.

Course Overview

This course provides a step-by-step introduction to satellite radar sensors, SAR imagery, SAR interferometry and advanced InSAR techniques. Rather than a tutorial for remote sensing specialists, the course starts from very basic concepts and explain in plain language the most important ideas related to SAR data processing and why geoscientists and engineers should take a vested interest in this new information source.
Special attention will be paid to oil and gas applications where surface deformation data can provide valuable constraints on reservoir dynamics, enabling time-lapse monitoring of volumetric strains at depth.

Who Should Attend?

It is not a course for radar specialists. Reservoir engineers, geophysicists, geodesists, geologists should all be interested in this new tool for surface deformation monitoring that is becoming more and more a standard. Radar data are still largely unknown, but their impact on oil&gas and civil protection applications can be huge.


Rather than a strong background in remote sensing, geophysics and calculus, curiosity is probably the most important prerequisite. The course can be understood by geoscientists and engineers with a moderate mathematical background.
