NASA's SMAP map clarify link from wet soil to weather

19 November 2014

Anyone who spends time outdoors knows that weather influences soil moisture -- the moisture locked in soils that allows plants to grow -- through temperature, wind and, of course, rain and snowfall. But in our complex, interlocking Earth system, there are almost no one-way streets. How does soil moisture influence weather in return?

Big Data from Space

21 November 2014

Climate Change, crisis information, digital humanitarians, disaster resilience, earthquake precursor, flood detection, forest monitoring, and green-house gases are just some of the themes where Big Data from Space plays a fundamental role and will change the way in which these themes are addressed. This emerges from the recent 2014 Conference on Big Data from Space, co-organised by ESA, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, and the European Union Satellite Centre.

Split Remote Sensing Summer School 2015

20 - 22 May 2015

Organisation: G-ECO Research Inc.

Location: Thessaloniki, Greece

Course Overview:

Environmental Security: Remote Sensing of Natural Resources (SplitRS 2015) is an interactive event between universities, research institutions and private firms. It considers the state-of-the-art remote sensing technology, sophisticated and comprehensive modelling approaches, data analysis, sophisticated software capabilities - all of which is incorporated in the framework of building the well-designed strategy to protect natural resources and public well-being. The proposed topics include the environmental security issues related to:

  • Food security and sustainable agriculture
  • Energy resources
  • Climate changes
  • Water quantity and water quality
  • Environmental hazards

This intensive and advanced 3-day learning event presents best insights into most recent techniques learned from top international professors and researchers through lectures and hands-on sessions. Participants will learn about different remote sensing applications using primarily hyperspectral and LiDAR sensors. Learning about information extraction techniques will be an integral part of the school program in 2015.
