International school on Geophysics and remote sensing for Archaeology

Call for applications for an international summer school on "Geophysics and remote sensing for Archaeology" to be held at Pompeii, 9-13 May 2016.

The School aims at giving the opportunity to scholars, PhD students, researchers and specialists in Geophysics, Remote Sensing and Archaeology to deepen their knowledge and expertise with geophysical and remote sensing techniques for archaeology and cultural heritage documentation and management.

The school consists of lectures and on-field practical work at the prestigious site of Pompei. The course will provide the basics about data collection, processing and interpretation for geophysical techniques (GPR, magnetic, ERT), passive and active remote sensing and low-cost approaches based on the use of UAV.

The school is organized by two Institutes of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, i.e., CNR-IBAM and CNR-IREA, and Soprintendenza Speciale Beni Archeologici Pompei, Ercolano e Stabia.
