ISPRS NEWS: International Workshop on Earth Observation for Agricultural Monitoring

As you are aware, Agriculture was a major focus in the early development of remote sensing and today remains a major driver of global Earth Observation (EO) programmes.  In recent years, there has been tremendous development in the availability of satellite data and the tools/technologies for EO data analysis for agriculture. Additionally, various initiatives have been taken for operationalization of the applications of EO for Agriculture.  India, which started its remote sensing activity, in 1969, with the famous coconut root wilt assessment experiment, is attaining 50 years of remote sensing program in the country.
In this context, an international workshop is planned to review the status of Earth Observation for Agricultural Monitoring, at global, regional and national levels, and to discuss and propose the future course of action. The workshop will be conducted during February 18-20, 2019, in New Delhi. This will be followed by a 2-Day Tutorial on Advances in Remote Sensing for Agriculture, on February 21-22, 2019. A flyer for the workshop is enclosed for your kind perusal.
The workshop is being jointly organised by the global agricultural monitoring programme of the Group on Earth Observations (GEOGLAM); the International Society for Photogrammetery and Remote Sensing, ISPRS (through its working group III/10) and the Indian Society of Remote Sensing (ISRS). It is supported by Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare, Indian Space Research Organization, SARI (South/Southeast Asia Research Initiative) and Asia-RiCE Programme. The workshop is being hosted by the Mahalanobis National Crop Forecast Centre, Indian Agricultural Research Institute and ISRS Delhi Chapter.
It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in this important workshop and present your research work on agricultural monitoring. Details are available on the website

NEWS: A message from the Geospatial Commission

I am pleased to inform you that in August we published our national geospatial strategy call for evidence document.  It focusses on three themes of
innovation, enhancing geospatial assets and driving investment.  

The launch is a pivotal moment to help set the UK’s future geospatial vision and I hope you respond to our call for evidence.

MS Amlin Academic Advisory Panel / seeking expertise in hydrology, meteorology, geophysics and structural engineering

MS Amlin writes significant catastrophe risk across its Marine, Property and Reinsurance classes of business. MS Amlin are looking for experts to join their Academic Advisory Panel. The panel is a new initiative to look at the latest academic research in the area of catastrophe modelling (including exposure, hazard and vulnerability) and offer advice and information to a variety of audiences and through a wide range of channels.  By joining the panel, academics will get the opportunity to share ideas, promote and seek industry funding for joined research projects, and of course generate publicity and exposure for the work of their faculties. 

Due to the impact of variables such as climate change and other geo-political factors, as well as newly emerging risks, the risk landscape is constantly changing. This creates a challenge for risk management and the ability to model possible outcomes, stress test extreme scenarios and inform our view of catastrophe risk, an area which assumes greater importance within the business. Whilst we use commercial catastrophe models to quantify MS Amlin’s catastrophe exposure for pricing and portfolio accumulation, we hope that our Academic Advisory Panel will expand our research and knowledge base in the fields of catastrophe modelling. 

MS Amlin are looking for passionate academic experts (at Senior Researcher to Reader/Professor level), based in the UK or continental Europe, with interest in modelling and in-depth knowledge in each of the following fields: 

1. Seismology: A geo-physicist or seismic engineer to help our scientific understanding around earthquake modelling, such as evaluating latest scientific analysis that has been incorporated by the model vendors. 

2. Hydrology: A hydrologist to support our understanding of flood models, such as the underlying hydraulic/hydrologic modelling techniques and latest scientific and policy developments. 

3. Meteorology: A meteorologist with a broad range of knowledge to advise on wind-related perils, climate change impact and atmospheric science in general. 

4. Engineering: A structural engineer with a deep understanding around the engineering of the built environment to support the scientific analysis of damage functions and business interruption in catastrophe models. 

It is anticipated that the Academic Advisory Panel will meet quarterly at MS Amlin offices in London, starting in February 2018, to provide updates of current research trends and new scientific initiatives (datasets, models etc.) in each of the above areas and to exchange ideas. Expenses will be fully reimbursed. 

If you are interested in being part of MS Amlin’s Academic Advisory Panel, or know of any colleagues who may be, please respond by 14 November 2017 with your CV and a cover note outlining how you anticipate you might contribute to the panel.  Dr Tina Thomson, Research Manager, Underwriting Modelling, MS Amlin, The Leadenhall Building, 122 Leadenhall Street, London EC3V 4AG - This email address is being protected from spambots.
