The school will be held at the Ecole de Physique des
Houches in spectacular surroundings just outside
Chamonix Mont-Blanc. Accommodation is provided on
site. There is a main train station in Chamonix. The
nearest airport is Geneva, which is an hour by car.

This international spring school is aimed at young
researchers in the domains of information processing
(signal, image, data mining…) and geosciences using
SAR images. The one week school will concentrate
on tools and methods of SAR data analysis and
applications in monitoring geophysical phenomena at
the origin of observed displacements (earthquakes,
volcanoes, glaciers…). The programme stretches
from electromagnetic backscattering to physical model
inversion, including practical work and observation on
the site Chamonix Mont-Blanc. The school will allow
PhD students, young scientists and experts to share
their knowledge of recent advances linked to the new
generation of radar satellites, and processing methods
allowing effective exploitation of the resulting data.

Cette école de printemps internationale s’adresse à
des jeunes chercheurs des domaines du traitement de
l’information (signal, image, fouille de données…) et
des sciences de la Terre, dont les travaux portent sur
l’analyse des images radar à synthèse d’ouverture
(SAR). La session d’une semaine est centrée sur les
outils et méthodes de traitement des données SAR et
leurs applications au suivi des phénomènes
géophysiques à l’origine des déplacements observés
(séismes, volcans, glaciers…). Le programme
comprend des cours allant de la rétrodiffusion
électromagnétique à l’inversion de modèles
physiques, ainsi que des travaux pratiques et de
l’observation sur le site Chamonix Mont-Blanc. L’école
permettra à des doctorants, des jeunes scientifiques
et des experts du domaine de partager leurs
connaissances sur les avancées récentes liées à la
nouvelle génération de satellites radar et aux
efficacement la masse de données qui en découle.
The lectures and course materials will be in English.

Preliminary Programme
The programme is divided into five topics, one per
day. The practical work and demonstrations are held
during the evening sessions. Field experiments are
also planned: one near “Les Houches” to investigate
the pixel content of SAR images acquired over this
area, and one near the Argentière glacier to observe
the instrumentation displayed over this test site. They
are planned on Monday and Friday afternoons
respectively, with possible changes according to
weather conditions.
