Making the most of Remote Sensing Data in Hydrometeorology

The Department of Civil Engineering cordially invites you for the expert talk seminar on “Making the most of Remote Sensing Data in Hydrometeorology” on September 29, 2022 (Thursday), 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM. The expert talk will be delivered by Dr. J Indu (Associate Professor, Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay). The session will be moderated by Dr. Gyan Vikash, Associate Professor, Department of Civil Engineering.

Abstract of the talk

Satellite remote sensing has revolutionized the way we perceive Earth. Big data streaming in petabytes from satellites in different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum have immense potential in various fields of engineering and science. Our ability to collect data far out spaces our ability to understand and assimilate it. This talk shall give a brief overview of Satellite Remote sensing and showcase how radar data finds use in the field of hydrometeorology. Working case studies shall be presented based on ongoing international and national projects.
