ISRO is currently accepting applications for two new free one-day workshops organized by the Indian Institute for Remote Sensing, which is a center of the Indian Space Research Organization. One is an online workshop titled âLunar Remote Sensing and Its Applicationsâ, which will take place on August 11, 2021 and the other is an online workshop titled âSAR Application for Flood Risk Mapping and Monitoringâ , which will take place on July 16, 2021..
Interested participants can register and attend the course through the IIRS e-class portal or can also connect to the institute’s official YouTube channel. Participants who attend the entire workshop live through the eclass portal will receive an ISRO certificate. Participants who attend the workshop on the IIRS YouTube channel should mark their presence through the offline sessions which will be available after 24 hours.
