  • RSAD Climate Change Subcommittee News
    idea Would you be willing to participate in a Geospatial Climate Change Awareness Day Student Involvement The CCC recognizes that the Student Chapters are key to the growth and long term success of ASPRS A primary focus of the RSAD has been to actively engage students and encourage their participation in its activities The RSAD has for the Academic Engagement Subcommittee specifically for this purpose The CCC has been working students in a variety of ways Communicating with students Adam Benjamin SAC Chair will talk to Kim Tilley and they will try to set a webinar The purpose of the webinar would be to allow students the opportunity to present on a topic or their research to other ASPRS members in a less formal atmosphere This will give the students presentation experience and receive feedback or help on questions they may have Students would be informed about the webinar by email blast and be invited to join online to participate in the discussions The CCC would provide a brief text explaining the reason why we are putting the webinar together to be added to the email blast Use of social media The SAC is probably the most active portion within ASPRS in using social media to communicate and raise overall awareness within and external to the Society This seems like a prime area to tap into the Student members particular skill sets Is it possible to have student members keep these pages current under the direction of the Division Directors Student Credit Individual study credit pairing a student with ASPRS member professor at University Dr Michael Hodgson USC Dr Steven Degloria Cornell and Dr Joseph Knight UMN have all expressed some interest in the idea Approach needs to be defined One possibility would be for ASPRS Divisions to create a list of needs or potential topics to be addressed The list could be shared with Student Chapter Faculty Advisor typically professors at universities The Faculty Advisor could then oversee the work of the student Continue to ensure SAC and student members are made aware of all regular meetings of the Divisions Committees Guidelines SOP development The idea of developing Guidelines for using remote sensing for climate change continues to be a difficult task to tackle The range of topics as well as sensors varies dramatically in scale and approaches The Hot Topics session at the spring meeting in Baltimore attempted to get member feedback and direction While several topics were discussed one stronger idea came to the front NASA Ames is currently developing SOPs for processing spectral data for use in climate models at different scales We are currently investigating the potential of ASPRS helping review and formalize some of these SOPs Ideas for the Fall Conference We are looking for ideas for Special Sessions or Hot Topics for the fall conference Remember the topic of conference is Imaging and Mapping for Disaster Management If you would like to organize a session please let us know Workshop idea John McCombs

  • PECORA 18 :: Conference Overview
    known as Landsat 1 fulfilled William Pecora s vision for civilian space based observations of the Earth Pecora 18 celebrates his vision with the theme Forty Years of Earth Observations Understanding a Changing World The symposium focuses on how 40 years of Landsat and other Earth observation missions have influenced our understanding of the changing Earth and contributed to improving information needed for managing our natural resources Special emphasis will be given to the current state of the Landsat program such as the free data revolution and the upcoming launch of the Landsat Data Continuity Mission Lessons from the past and present serve as the foundation for looking toward the next generation of operational land remote sensing Participation We cordially invite land remote sensing data users researchers applications scientists producers managers and policy makers to participate in this important symposium by submitting an abstract for a paper or poster Participants are encouraged to attend general and technical sessions exhibits and educational workshops on the very latest remote sensing research modeling applications analysis techniques and technologies Pecora 18 provides an opportunity to make new friends and get reacquainted with old ones Organization The Pecora 18 Symposium will be held Monday through
