Please submit your abstract for the NH Session #2326 on
Satellite Remote Sensing and Management of Natural Disasters
Session ID#: 2326
The frequency of natural disasters related to land, ocean, atmosphere and snow around the globe is apparently on the increase. In many instances this is believed to be associated with climate change. Small satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles are increasingly being used for monitoring a wide variety of natural disasters and contributing to the management of their effects. This session will discuss remote sensing applications related to ongoing and future satellite missions and unmanned aerial vehicles in mapping, monitoring, damage assessment and early warning of all kinds of natural disasters (earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, droughts, subsidence, sinkholes, landslides, tornadoes, hurricanes/typhoons/cyclones, forest fires, tsunami, lightning, dust storms). Satellite remote sensing data are also being used to evaluate known vulnerable areas with the goal of improving forecast capability for natural disasters. Oral and poster contributions are welcome.
