The NASA ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) Science Workshop will be an in-person event organized by NASA and UNAVCO to bring together the science community in solid earth, ecosystems, cryosphere, hydro-geodesy and other areas of science that will benefit from the NISAR mission.
With launch planned in late 2023, NISAR will be the first radar of its kind in space to map Earth using two different frequencies (L-band and S-band). Its systematic mapping will provide consistent time series observation of our planet?s surface deformation and changes.
The 2.5 day workshop will inform the community about the upcoming mission, its planned science data products and upcoming funding opportunities to work on NISAR related science. Breakout sessions, poster sessions and plenary science talks provide a forum for building collaborations and discuss future directions for SAR data analysis, science and applications. The program will also provide information on available data analysis tools, computing resources and training opportunities.
Registration will open in November 2021. If you are interested in attending, please fill out this form to receive updates.
