Remote Sensing Disaster Database

The SFCG IWG on Disaster Management produced an on-line searchable Remote Sensing Disaster Database. The database provides information on instruments, mission, frequency of operation, data product, product usage, and data latency on remote sensing missions and instruments that can support disaster management and relief support efforts. A Users Guide (PDF, 197 KB) is available to assist in using the database. Guidance in developing the infrastructure to use these data, and where to obtain training in analyzing these data, is available in Guidance and Training for Users (PDF, 136 KB). Please report any errors, necessary additions or comments to the database curator.

Active Sensing Information for Radio Astronomers

At SFCG-30, the SFCG agreed to assist radio astronomers in protecting their sensitive receivers from damaging interference from spaceborne radars used for Earth observation and remote sensing by providing useful links and related information.
