Politecnico di Torino and Fondazione Montagna Sicura – Montagne Sûre, are organising the Summer School “Climate Change: ice and snow data collection, analysis and processing” that will take place on 18-27 September 2019 and will be hosted by Fondazione Montagna Sicura – Montagne Sûre at the Villa Cameron – Courmayeur, Italy.
The main goal of the summer school is to introduce the “learning by doing” approach:
• learn to detect, process, analyze and integrate data coming from different input platforms (satellite, UAV, in situ surveys, etc.) in order to assess the effects of climate change on glaciers and snow cover;
• analyze structural/non-structural measures in order to mitigate the avalanche risk;
• suggest working group in order to ensure the skills integration in the processing of the data collected.
The Summer School will explore the potential of freely available satellite data and derived information products focusing on ICE and SNOW.
