Natural disaster under climate change is a serious threat to sustainable development, and in recent years natural disasters, i.e., hydro-geo-meteorological hazards and risks, have been frequently experienced by both developing and developed countries.
In this circumstance, advanced remote sensing can play a vital role in disaster risk management. Satellites enable monitoring and detection of changes in a widespread area and assist mapping such information.
This session introduces papers focused on both remote sensing fundamentals and applications to promote investment in disaster risk management using advanced satellite data and integrated GIS data. Earth observation (EO) products may include monitoring information and in-situ observations on global and regional mega-disasters under climate change; for example, land surface dynamics, land cover and land use changes, numerical simulation, and social applications between near-real time observation and long-term trends with water/hydrological cycle.
We encourage the presentation of new research findings and novel approaches on natural disasters, such as mega-floods, tropical cyclones (typhoons), storm surges, earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, and wildfires, from local to global scales.
