Scope and Topics

This workshop intends to be a forum for discussion of research issues related to temporal analysis of remotely sensed data.  Since the launch of Landsat-1 in 1972, a large number of earth observation satellites have been launched.  The wealth of multitemporal data provides excellent opportunities to study environmental changes at local, regional and global scale. The workshop includes a wide arrays of topics such as:

•    Multitemporal image calibration and correction
•    Landsat, NOAA AVHRR, MODIS, MERIS, SPOT VGT Data Archive
•    Multitemporal SAR and InSAR data analysis
•    Cross-sensor satellite data - data fusion
•    Methodology for analysis of temporal data
•    Change detection methods
•    Landuse and land cover dynamics
•    Vegetation dynamics,ecological processes and environmental impact
•    Applications of multitemporal data
