9. The 5th Training Course for PALSAR Data Analysis (Supported by the Japan Forestry Society)

L-band SAR has found to be less affected by vegetation, more effective in analyzing interference, and has advantage in the forest observation, comparing to other frequencies commonly used in the SAR, such as X or C-band. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) allows everyone to download the global 25m-resolution PALSAR mosaic and forest/non-forest map freely:
  http://www.eorc.jaxa.jp/ALOS/palsar_fnf/fnf_jindex.htm
In addition, ALOS-2/PALSAR-2 was launched in May, 2014, and the basic observation will start taking advantages of these features. JAXA Earth Observation Research Center (EORC) started to call for participation in the Training Course for PALSAR Data Analysis so that more people can use the L-band SAR. (Free software will be provided.)
