An impressive range of international and national keynote speakers is currently being developed and more information will be available shortly.
Symposium Program Overview
Further information on the Symposium Program Overview will be available at a later date.
The Technical Program will include the following themes:
- Analysis Techniques and studies of Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Oceans and Land
- Sensors and Platforms
- Data Management, Dissemination Education and Policy
- Data Assimilation
- Emerging Space Programs
- Data Fusion and Integration
- In situ Observation and Data Scaling
- Advances in Analysis Techniques
In addition, authors are encouraged to submit papers which address the following special scientific themes:
- T1: Forest DegradationOn the application of remote sensing data for the detection of forest clearing and in particular selective logging, particularly in the tropics, and for the detection of the effects of climate change on forest health.
- T2: Sensor and Model SynergiesComplementary use of sensor technologies and platforms in any area, such as disaster management, but especially combined use of SAR and LiDAR for forest applications, and the combination of Super‐ or Hyper‐Spectral sensor data with SAR. Use of multi‐sensor synergies in model data assimilation/fusion frameworks to constrain predictions, derive parameters, and improve parameterisations.
- T3: Geoscience and Remote Sensing in Australasia and OceaniaRemote sensing activities and applications of particular importance to the Australasia and Oceania regions, such as earthquake mitigation in New Zealand, the response of the Great Barrier Reef to climate change, and sea‐level rise in the pacific islands.
- T4: Integrated Earth Observing SystemsConcepts and applications for integrated earth observing systems such as Global Earth Observation Systems of Systems (GEOSS), Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) and the Integrated Global Observation Systems (IGOS). Government and non‐Government Institutional and Organizational use of remote sensing data for Geoscience Applications and the use of Remote Sensing in Spatial Information Systems.
- T5: New Satellite MissionsOperating satellites, with a focus on experimental and innovative data acquisition and product derivation, operational mapping and data product derivation. New upcoming satellite systems with focus on operating status (performance and product delivery), quality of data and products (calibration and validation), innovation of the mission purpose, and data dissemination models.
- T6: Extra-Terrestrial Geoscience and Remote SensingApplication of techniques developed for Earth observation to the observation of extra‐terrestrial bodies, and the use of space‐borne sensor technologies for extra‐terrestrial exploration.
- T7: Disasters and HazardsDisaster Management and Mitigation, Hazards and Risk, Pollution and Contamination.
- T8: Dynamics of Earth Processes and Climate ChangeDerivation of Environmental parameters from Remote Sensing for the characterization of Dynamic Earth Processes and Climate Change, and their use in Spatial Information Systems, including Biosphere, Geosphere, Hydrosphere, Cryosphere, Atmosphere and Antroposphere.
- T9: Geoscience, Remote Sensing and GISGeoscience Remote Sensing and GIS: Present practice, new directions, future opportunities, and emerging benefits including Semantic web, Big data and geo‐information analytics, and Use Cases and the development of Digital Earth.
