Affairs session, so this can be a supplementary submission if you are
planning to submit abstracts to any other sessions. The deadline is August



Integration of Remote Sensing and Socioeconomic Data for Interdisciplinary
Research and Applications (Session: 3385)



Session Description: Addressing the challenges posed by global environmental
change and sustainable development increasingly requires interdisciplinary
understanding and assessment of the interactions between human and
environmental systems. The integration of remotely sensed biophysical and
socioeconomic data has emerged as an important arena for such research and
as a key way of translating Earth science research into forms useful for
societal applications and decision making. This session will showcase new
approaches to interdisciplinary data integration in critical areas such as
monitoring and prediction of urbanization and land use/land cover change,
disaster risk management, climate impact and vulnerability assessment, and
natural resource management. Of particular interest are methods to overcome
major barriers to integration such as disparate units of analysis and
differing spatial and temporal frameworks and cases of substantive use of
multiple data types in process or statistical modeling, spatial or trend
analysis, or development of societally relevant information and knowledge.
