Research and Applications
A new study based in part on NASA satellite data has shown that an increase in large, well-organised thunderstorms is behind increased rainfall in the wettest regions of the tropics.

Organisation: Asian Association of Remote Sensing (AARS)
Location: Metro Manila, the Philippines
ACRS 2015 will bring together students, researchers, scientists, policy makers, professionals and practitioners from developed and developing countries from and around Asia to share insights into the challenges and opportunities of Remote Sensing and related geospatial technologies in building resiliency and encouraging economic growth and development in one, dynamic Asia.
The conference takes place at a significant moment when disasters and climate change continues to negatively impact our people and the community. The conference, therefore, will provide an outstanding opportunity to learn how Remote Sensing will help us build resiliency to these disturbances, and in strengthening our capability to adapt to stress and change.
While addressing this issue, ACRS 2015 will also look into finding ways and opportunities for Remote Sensing to encourage inclusive economic growth in Asian countries. It has been widely proven that Remote Sensing can help us map our natural resources. But how do we use Remote Sensing and related technologies to efficiently manage these resources to ensure productive employment as a means of increasing the incomes of poor and excluded groups and raising their standards of living? These important issues and many others will be discussed thoroughly during the plenary and thematic sessions, poster sessions, workshops, and many side events of ACRS 2015.
