Forum 360: Monitoring Planet Earth 25 January 2023 1000 - 1130

Remote sensing is defined by the U.S. Geological Survey as the process of detecting and monitoring the physical characteristics of an area by measuring its reflected and emitted radiation at a distance, typically from satellite or aircraft. Recent acceleration of technologies and processes has enabled the use of remote sensing to map wildfires, track the effects of climate change, and monitor conflicts. Hear from the science and engineering community on successful applications of remote sensing and the challenges involved to monitor planet Earth.
