Basic Envisat Atmospheric Toolbox (BEAT) tutorial in China

Today in Shanghai: 

During a thematic advanced training course hosted by the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute, Chinese students learned from S[&]T'er Sander Niemeijer's Basic Envisat Atmospheric Toolbox (BEAT) practicum. The courses on remote sensing applications are hosted by universities and institutions in China, and represent a cooperation between the European Space Agency and the National Remote Sensing Center of China, a part of the Ministry of Science and Technology. 

Objectives include:

  • Inform participants about past, current and future atmospheric Earth Observation missions and their data 
  • Demonstrate the exploitation of ESA, TPM and Chinese Earth Observation data for air quality and greenhouse gas monitoring from space
  • Introduce available software tools, methods, models, inversion, and data assimilation for the exploitation of ESA Chinese satellite data.


S[&]T is proud that our atmospheric data and toolbox are front and center internationally for learning about Earth Observation data and its applications. We wish the students all the best in their learning processes! You can click here for the original post from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
