News of the week
An international team led by glaciologists from the University of Colorado Boulder and Trent University in Ontario, Canada has completed the first mapping of virtually all of the world's glaciers -- including their locations and sizes -- allowing for calculations of their volumes and ongoing contributions to global sea rise as the world warms.
Earth Observation Missions
The Brazilian Space Agency (AEB) has shipped the solar generator to China for the fourth China-Brazil Earth Resources Satellite (CBERS 4).
Research and Applications
Heavy rains that begun in April in northern Afghanistan have caused flooding and one catastrophic landslide that killed an unknown number of people.

Organisation: African Association of Remote Sensing of the Environment (AARSE)
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
This will be the 10th biennial AARSE conference and will continue the excellent tradition of gathering world-class scientists, engineers and educators engaged in the fields of remote sensing and environment. AARSE believe that the scientific themes of this event, focusing on the characterisation of dynamic Earth processes, assimilation, today's and upcoming satellite missions and integrated Earth observing systems will allow the formation of a most interesting technical program.
