Fields of Interest
The fields of interest of the Society are the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as they apply to the remote sensing of the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation and dissemination of this information.
Members of GRSS come from both engineering and scientific disciplinary backgrounds. Those with engineering backgrounds often support geoscientific investigations with the design and development of hardware and data processing techniques, thereby requiring of them familiarity in areas such as geophysics, geology, hydrology, meteorology, etc. Conversely, discipline scientists find in GRSS a forum for the dissemination and evaluation of remote sensing related work in these areas. This fusion of geoscientific and engineering disciplines gives GRSS a unique interdisciplinary character and an exciting role in furthering remote sensing science and technology.
