Airborne and Satellite Remote Sensing Community

Airborne and Satellite Remote Sensing Community

  The Airborne and Satellite Remote Sensing Community is an ASA Community within the Climatology and Modeling Section.

Remote sensing has been a popular topic at ASA conferences and involves a diversity of researchers interested in both sensor systems, analytical procedures, and applications. Aircraft and satellite sensing is a popular method for obtaining information on the spatial and temporal distribution of vegetation and soil resources.  This community seeks to further the development and application of remote sensing in identifying, assessing, and monitoring aspects related to agronomy.

      2017 ASA International Meeting - Tampa, FL. October 22-25 Symposium      

     The ASRS community is proud to announce we are hosting a symposium to be held as part of the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) under the 2017 Tri-Society International Annual Meetings in Tampa, FL. More information regarding speakers, topic presentations, and date will be published here soon!

      Symposium description:

      The advances over the last decades in remote sensing science consolidate its importance in the agricultural sector. The new and historical earth observation data sources are becoming more frequently. New methodologies and techniques are leading to sophisticated algorithms with multilevel data integration. Combining them with climate, soil, and crop information is making remote sensing even more powerful. In the era of new-generation nanosatellites and drones, how can remote sensing technology help make producers more efficient, profitable and sustainable? The Symposium will be focused on advances in how this information can be incorporated into agricultural decision making.
