interferogramRomanian Space Agency (ROSA) organized “GEOSS Summer School: Advancing Earth Observation Data Understanding Crisis Management and Emergency Response” at Neptun, Constanta between 29th of August and 4th of September 2011.

The main goal of the second edition of the summer school was to acquire knowledge on current use of EO data and image information mining techniques contributing to prevent, monitor and assess the impact of natural and man-made disasters and crisis situations.

TERRASIGNA's (former ASRC) contribution focused on the subject “Monitoring with SAR: the potential and use for security and risk applications of the very high resolution SAR imaging”. Extractions of information from high resolution SAR scenes and image analysis have become relevant in the context of the high diversity of man-made structures combined with the complexity of the scattering processes.

The course aimed at presenting advanced methods for helping users in SAR image understanding based on interactive and automatic algorithms. The methods are intended for the analysis of the most used products: detected and single look complex images, and supported by coherent multiple observations including multi-temporal and tomographic applications.

The presentation have been illustrated by hands-on exercises showing practical aspects on generating infrastructure monitoring information products.
