In Memoriam: Manfred Owe
Conference Chair and Senior Scientist Emeritus at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

The 2016 Remote Sensing for Agriculture, Ecosystems, and Hydrology Conference will be dedicated to honoring Manfred Owe, former conference chair and conference committee member. Through his decade-long involvement from 2000 to 2009, Manfred made considerable contributions to the success of the event.  We will greatly miss our dear friend and colleague.

SPIE conference papers are published in the Proceedings of SPIE and available via the SPIE Digital Library, the world’s largest collection of optics and photonics research.  

The Proceedings are indexed in Web of Science, Scopus, Ei Compendex, Inspec, Google Scholar, Astrophysical Data System (ADS), DeepDyve, ReadCube, CrossRef, and other scholarly indexes, and are widely accessible to leading research organizations, conference attendees, and individual researchers. 

SPIE Remote Sensing is co-located with SPIE Security + Defence. Collaborate on topics of mutual interest with your peers at these premier events.

SPIE Remote Sensing is managed by SPIE Europe.
