ISPRS Technical Commission III WG III/2, 10 Joint Workshop
by Charles Jjuuko (comments: 0)
Recently, an increasing frequency of extreme climatic events has been observed. Hence there is concern that the impacts of global environmental change is increasing. It is reported that extreme weather such as strong typhoon, hurricanes, torrential rain, droughts and heat waves are taking places at various places in the world. These extreme weather caused by climate change are affecting to not only natural environment but also human environment.
On the other hand, vegetation is sensitive to climate change. From natural ecosystems to anthropic agricultural areas, vegetation is observable from space. A shift in climate dynamics is reflected in changes in ecosystems' dynamic equilibrium, triggering a direct or indirect response in vegetation. Earth observation via remote sensing provides the ideal tool for Earth monitoring, and hence remote sensing plays a key role in Earth monitoring.
The workshop will held at the Kyoto University's Clock Tower Centennial Hall, Kyoto Japan.
Date: 12th- 14th March 2019
The themes include but are not limited to:
- Microwave Remote Sensing (WG III/2)
- Agriculture and Natural Ecosystems Modelling and Monitoring (WG III/10)
- Landuse and Landcover Monitoring
- Disaster Monitoring
- Civil Infrastructure Monitoring
