In the seminar "Introduction to Global Remote Sensing Data Products", methods and techniques for generating various essential climate variables (e.g. soil moisture, evapotranspiration, albedo, vegetation, land cover classification) from remote sensing data are presented and discussed, as well as the application of these products for Earth system-related research. The exercise "Applications of Remote Sensing Products" explains the acquisition and processing of various satellite products and gives concrete tasks for a better understanding and application of satellite products.
