Remote Sensing Working Group

The Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems Working Group seeks to connect multidisciplinary efforts within the field.  Group members study and model earth systems using remote sensing technology and geographic information systems (GIS). These technologies are used for a wide variety of applications, including geology, hydrology, oceanography, navigation, and interaction between systems.

The group facilitates information transfer of research ideas between members of academic, national, and governmental organizations in an effort to make available a holistic view of atmospheric, geographic, and hydrologic systems. Ultimately, it endeavors to affect social and political climates by dispersing the results of our collective research.
