    Conference Overview

    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.
