AbstractGlobeSAR-2 is a RADARSAT training, technology transfer, and applications development program being conducted in 11 countries in Latin America by the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) with Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and International Development and Research Centre (IDRC) support. Private sector partners include Radarsat International (RSI), PCI, and Atlantis Scientific. The program goals are: 1) to provide the basic background and understanding of how to use SAR imagery in general, and RADARSAT products in particular; 2) to provide the necessary data and analyses tools to support applications development and demonstration; and 3) conduct collaborative detailed studies on a wide range of applications. One of the major elements of GlobeSAR-2 is the university program and curriculum development package. The GlobeSAR-2 university program is a graduate student support and faculty/staff exchange program meant to foster the use of RADARSAT data in joint research projects between South American and Canadian universities. The curriculum development package is a digital collection on CD-ROM of training materials, application modules and image examples, image processing exercises, and other such material designed to aid universities professors or staff in developing a radar remote sensing curriculum at their particular institute. This paper briefly describes the GlobeSAR-2 program and includes a detailed description of the university program being conducted within GlobeSAR-2 as well as the contents of the university package.
