News Call for abstracts reminder: The third International symposium on "Recent advances in quantitative remote sensing"

This symposium hosted in Torrent (Valencia)-Spain, is THE THIRD INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON "RECENT ADVANCES IN QUANTITATIVE REMOTE SENSING" organised by the Global Change Unit, University of Valencia.

The deadline for abstract submission for the third International Symposium RECENT ADVANCES IN QUANTITATIVE REMOTE SENSING is March 15, 2010.

The symposium will be held on 27 September to 1 October 2010 at Auditori Torrent, Valencia, Spain (

  • Multiangular and Multitemporal measurements
  • Fusion, reduction and assimilation of data
  • Scaling
  • Carbon and Water cycle observation and modelling
  • Land cover/use and change
  • Global change and sustainable development
  • Sensor calibration, atmospheric correction, and product validation
  • Passive and actives microwaves & SAR data processing/ applications
