Google Earth Engine Workshop in Dublin

Jean Wilson alerts us to Google Earth Engine workshop in Dublin- hosted by one of the founders of Google Earth Engine, Noel Gorelick- I’d say a must especially for Earth Obs PhD students and Post Docs.

What: Google Earth Engine Workshops (2 sessions)

Where: Google Dublin

When: January 18th, 9:00 – 13:00 (Intro) and 14:00 – 17:00 (Advanced)

Who: These workshops are best suited for researchers that are already familiar with some form of Earth observation / remote sensing data analysis techniques.

Cost: Free, but space is limited, so there’s a chance we won’t be able to accommodate everyone and signup is required.





ESA Remote Sensing post doc fellowships

From ESA:

On behalf of the European Space Agency (ESA), we are pleased to invite you to participate to the Call for Research Proposals of the Living Planet Fellowship 2018.The main objective of this initiative is to support young researchers who have a doctoral degree and who would like to initiate a scientific career in the context of Earth Observation and Earth system science.

With this call ESA plans to support up to 10 Post-Doctoral researchers (supported by ESA with a maximum amount of 99k Euro for 2-years under a co-funding scheme) to carry out a research project at a Host Institution in an eligible ESA Member State.

Candidate researchers shall submit research proposals responding to one of following Research Areas:

Advancing Novel Methods and Techniques

Advancing Earth System Science


The Living Planet Fellowship 2018 Projects will be funded under the 5th period of ESA?s Earth Observation Envelope Programme (EOEP-5). EOEP-5 is an optional programme of the Agency, and participation is restricted to host institutions which have their registered office in one of the following Participating States: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Slovenia and Canada.

New Earth Observation Journal Launched

From Taylor & Francis:


Big Earth Data is an interdisciplinary Open Access journal aiming to promote ‘big data’ sharing, processing and analysis in space to ground geosciences, thereby revolutionising the cognition of the Earth’s systems and its dynamic process. The journal publishes research topics on ‘big data’ studies across the entire spectrum of Earth Sciences. Article types include original research articles, review articles, data papers and technical notes
