Vietnam School of Earth Observation


Vietnam School of Earth Observation
Rencontres du Vietnam – University of Science and Technology of Hanoi

Remote Sensing for Earth Observation will become a scientific priority in Vietnam for the next decades. In this perspective and in conclusion of a workshop organized by the « Space and Aeronautics » department (S&A) of USTH (University of Science and Technology of Hanoi) on March 15 to 17, 2017 (click here for more information), « Rencontres du Vietnam » and USTH decided to organize an annual Summer school dedicated to Remote Sensing for Earth Observation. A large amount of free of charge data related to observations of Vietnam from space will be available and can be used by Vietnamese institutions. Some initiatives to facilitate access to « Analysis ready set of data » for the Vietnamese community, like the CEOS DataCube center at VAST/VNSC, have already been taken and will be pursued in the next coming years.

To contribute to the training of the Vietnamese scientific community, the Vietnam School of Earth Observation (VSEO) will be held every year at the ICISE center at Quy Nhon in the framework of the Rencontres du Vietnam with the decisive contributions of French institutions and expertise (including CNES, CNRS, Paris Observatory and Paris Diderot, Paris-Est Créteil and Montpellier universities) and the University of Science and Technology of Hanoi (USTH).

The 14th Rencontres du Vietnam entitled "Atmospheric Remote Sensing and Molecular Spectroscopy" is held from August 26-31, 2018 in Quy Nhon, Vietnam. This summer school will discuss recent advances in atmospheric remote sensing made possible through accurate measurement, understanding and interpretation of molecular spectra. An introduction to molecular spectroscopy will be given. The aim of this school is to provide to all participants a multidisciplinary training (lectures, tutorials, conferences) of this important sub-discipline of the atmospheric sciences. Lectures are delivered in English by French experts in the field. Participants will be able to present their own research (oral or poster). The school is addressed to all Vietnamese researchers interested in atmospheric remote sensing, air quality and climate change studies (young, confirmed, PhD and Master level). There will be opportunities for establishing research collaborations between participants and lecturers, sharing ideas and discussions on new research topics in Vietnam.
