To celebrate our 25th anniversary the Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG) has invited the founding chairman, Geoff Lawrence, to give a keynote presentation which will track how Geological remote sensing has progressed and will be entitled ‘25 years of Geological Remote Sensing: Then and Now’.

There will also be keynotes throughout the conference explaining the history and significance of remote sensing applied to the following areas: 

  • Oil and Gas: Martin Insley (Tullow Oil)
  • RS and disaster management: Richard Teeuw (Portsmouth University)
  • Mineral Exploration: Dan Taranik (Exploration Mapping)
  • Engineering applications: Jason Manning (Arup)
  • InSAR and Geohazards:  TBC

As usual, abstracts are welcome on a wide range of remote sensing themes, including:

  • Retrospective viewpoints on how remote sensing has changed in 25 years (e.g. Landsat, ASTER, Hyperspectral etc.)
  • New sensors: technological developments, analytical methods & algorithms
  • Latest developments in:
    • Mineral exploration
    • Oil & Gas
    • Geological applications (geologicalmapping, lithological classification, tectonics, seismology)
    • Geomorphology
    • Geohazards (e.g. landslides, flooding)
    • Terrain, Bathymetry and Elevation models
    • Classification, multi-temporal analysis and modelling
  • Planetary science & comparative geomorphology
  • Hyperspectral & Multispectral; Radar / InSAR; Optical & high resolution
