Session Title: Helping Disasters Management through the Use of Remote Sensing Observational Data and their underlying Cyberinfrastructures
Remote sensing measurements enable science and our understanding of the Earth and are inherently useful for disaster management. Remote sensing data cannot prevent disasters, but dissemination of these acquired observations can help to minimize damages through prediction, mitigation, preparedness, warning, response and recovery. To support disaster management, it is essential to provide information in a timely manner that requires reliable and capable cyberinfrastructures. Many national and international organizations are working to coordinate the observations and cyberinfrastructures to support full disaster life cycle (e.g., GEOSS). This session seeks papers that describe disaster management challenges; ways remote sensing data can help disaster management and their use cases; as well as technologies and cyberinfrastructures supporting disaster management.
