Space applications

LAND space applications: Space derived land parameters, spectral indices, landscape/ecosystem elements derivation and use in land use/land cover, forestry, agriculture, agriculture, biodiversity, urban mapping, waste management, and vegetation monitoring applications.
CLIMATE space applications: Climate related indices from space, space monitoring of radiatively acting gases, monitoring and mapping of global scale events (e.g. dust outbreaks, volcanic eruptions), space derived climatologies of essential environmental/climate parameters, synergies with ground based observational platforms and modeling, extreme weather events (e.g. heatwaves).
ATMOSPHERE space applications: Application in Atmosphere of: passive sensors, lidar/radar active sensors and Doppler technologies in atmospheric science; Ground-based remote sensors for the calibration and validation of satellite missions
MARINE space applications: Review of the different remote-sensing platforms available for studying the ocean, basic ocean dynamics and bio-optical properties in the sea, basics for applications of altimetry, wind scatterometry and sea-surface temperature to the study of ocean circulation and air-sea interactions, and ocean colour to the estimation of primary production.
DRR&S (Disaster Risk Reduction & Security) space applications: Hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment with geo-spatial and remote sensing techniques, disaster monitoring: satellite image processing techniques for hazard real-near real time monitoring, remote sensing in identification of the extent and magnitude of the hazard, early warning systems and information networks, disaster impact analysis with RS, integrated approaches using RS, navigation, and telecom, inclusion of citizen observatories.
