Remote sensing data processing and characterization are an integral part of weather and climate predictions. Analysts use advanced remote sensing maps for the monitoring of hazardous phenomena, exploration of ocean resources, and tracking cryospheric changes that result from global warming. Advanced remote sensing and data processing is a crucial information resource for in-depth understanding of the interrelated processes of the atmosphere, ocean, geosphere, cryosphere and biosphere.
The 2016 APRS Symposium will focus on the application of remote sensing technologies for disaster mitigation and to better monitor global climate change. The deliberations of the conference will generate new initiatives and collaborative international efforts to direct governmental policies.
