Terms of Reference:

  • Promote advanced research, engineering development, and operational use of theories, methods, systems for the analysis of remotely sensed microwave observations of the Earth from air- , space- and ground-borne sensors;
  • Focus on physical modelling of microwave radiation, the analysis of spectral signatures, radar image classification, data fusion, pattern recognition, and quality control;
  • Enhance the applications in monitoring and assessing environment, geohazards, landuse/landcover, nature resources, weather/atmosphere and climate, cryosphere, coastal and ocean, forestry/agricultural and ecosystems/biodiversity;
  • Integrate the global efforts by effective out-reach through data/algorithms sharing and capacity building, cooperates intensively with international professional societies, national space agencies, and alliance with the International Committee On Remote Sensing of Environment (ICORSE).
