NERC-ARF Workshop

The annual NERC Airborne Research Facility (NERC-ARF) training workshop will be held on 13th – 14th March 2017 at British Antarctic Survey (BAS), Cambridge. The workshop will give an overview of the sensors operated by NERC-ARF and provide hands-on training in processing of hyperspectral and LiDAR data.

The workshop is aimed at all users of NERC-ARF data and will cover:

  • Basics of remote sensing
  • Introduction to NERC-ARF and the sensors operated.
  • Calibration facilities used by NERC-ARF at BAS
  • Introduction to the Field Spectroscopy Facility (FSF) and the role of field spectroscopy in atmospheric correction.
  • Processing of hyperspectral data using the Airborne Processing Library (APL).
  • Atmospheric correction of airborne data.
  • Processing LiDAR data using open source tools.
  • Tools and techniques for further data analysis.

Registration is free for users of NERC-ARF data. For more details on BAS Cambridge, including travel direction see: If you can’t make it to Cambridge the workshop will be live streamed, allowing remote participation.
