A major international forum on the problems of remote sensing (RS) – International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium 2015 (IGARSS 2015) was held in Milan, Italy from 27 to 31 July.
This congress is organized annually by the International Society for Remote Sensing IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society. This time, the Congress was attended by over 2,000 representatives from more than 60 countries. In a special section devoted to the use of remote sensing for monitoring of natural disasters, an report was made by prof. V.A.Zelentsov. Topic: River floods short-term forecasting system based on integrated use of space-ground data. Constructive exchange of results and opinions on the issues of integrated ground-space monitoring and possibilities of international cooperation in this area of research were discussed during the congress/ The materials of the Congress can be found in the laboratory.
