Microwave Image Processing: Exploring SAR images from Foundations to Frontiers through Python

Remote Sensing has proved to be an important tool in monitoring our earth eco-system. The satellite imaging is a vital part of Remote Sensing. Predominantly, Satellite Imaging of the earth has been done in the optical domain and optical Images serve the majority of purpose for earth monitoring. But, these satellites do not have all-weather acquisition capability and this lacuna is filled by the satellite sensors working in the Microwave domain of the Electromagnetic spectrum. Synthetic Aperture Radar(SAR) is an Imaging Radar that acquires images of a particular area in the microwave region. This workshop deals with the processing of SAR Images and how these images can be beneficial in a variety of geographical applications.
