CAWa Summer School 2017

“Methods and Tools for the Assessment and Monitoring of Central Asian Water and Land Resources”

05 – 17 June, 2017

at the German-Kazakh University in Almaty, Kazakhstan

 

The CAWa Summer School addresses master and PhD students and junior university teachers and researchers from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Afghanistan interested in innovative methods and tools for the analysis and monitoring of water and land resources in Central Asia.  Theoretical lectures will comprise an in-depth introduction to geographical information systems (GIS), an overview on remote sensing applications for land and water resources monitoring, an introduction to climatological data analysis, and an introduction to glaciology. In practical exercises focusing on data analysis, the CAWa Summer School participants will use open source tools such as QGIS for spatial analysis, R for statistical analysis, and PCI Geomatica for satellite data processing.

For further details on dates, venues, organizers and funding as well as for further information on how to apply, please see the website of the CAWa project with linked circular and application form.
