Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to submit an abstract to session 8262
" Small Satellites to Crowdsourcing: Evolving Technologies for Natural Hazards " of the Fall AGU meeting to be held 2015 Dec 14-18 in San Francisco. Abstracts are due 2015 Aug 5.

Session Description:
Observational data from remote sensing measurements have contributed significantly to improvement in our understanding of natural hazards and have proven inherently useful for disaster management. Small satellites, crewed aircraft and drones, as well as in situ sensors and crowdsourced content, are increasingly being used for monitoring disasters and supporting mitigation, in addition to relief efforts. Reliable and efficient cyberinfrastructure is key to providing accurate, timely information in the context of a Common Operating Picture for disaster responders. Remote sensing data products are also proving critical to forecasters and natural hazard researchers. This interdisciplinary session seeks contributions detailing research into new sensors and techniques for applications to natural hazards; techniques for detecting and monitoring disaster events, and producing and delivering near-realtime products to first responders; methods for evaluating the utility of data products; and the development of models and tools for assessing hazard risks and generating damage assessment products.
