Jurassic Scan : Remote scanning in Palaeontology and Earth Observation
LBG Liège (Belgium)
03 July 2023 – 11 July 2023
Have you ever dreamed of unlocking the mysteries of the ancient world and unlocking the secrets of our planet’s past? Have you ever imagined discovering the ancient habitats and ecosystems of the dinosaurs and other reptiles?
Welcome to this thrilling course where we will embark on a journey through time and technology. Welcome to JURASSIC SCAN! Our journey will be divided into two parts, each of which will unlock a new aspect of the earth’s history and future.
The first part of the course will focus on a SAR (synthetic aperture radar) remote sensing, which includes: some remote sensing concepts, and radar remote sensing specifically. Then, the three main aspects of SAR remote sensing are developeds: amplitude, polarization, and phase.. Here, we will explore how scientists use satellite imagery to study the earth from space. You will learn how to analyze data from these scans to determine how the earth’s ice floes are changing and what the implications are for our planet’s future.
In the second part of the course, we will examine how scientists scan fossils of dinosaurs and other reptiles to reconstruct the environments of the past. You will learn how to interpret data from these scans and how to use it to reconstruct the earth’s ancient climates, habitats, and ecosystems.
By the end of this course, you will have a deep understanding of how the earth’s past and future are intertwined and how remote scanning can help us to better understand our planet. So join us on this exciting journey and discover the secrets of the earth’s past and future!
