The National Centre for Remote Sensing at Hyderabad, an ISRO centre focussing exclusively on remote sensing related activities, organised a one day ‘Academica and student interaction meeting’ on 5th Feb 2015. Myself and my PhD student Sumithra Sankaran attended this meeting.
We had very good interactions with scientists at NRSC. We discussed our requirement of high resolution data of various ecosystems for our research work for which they offered lot of support. We hope to build strong collaborations with the ISRO scientists.
Congratulations to Sumithra Sankaran who won a best poster award for her poster on ‘Characterising vegetation of semi-arid ecosystems’. She presented her modelling work on based on simple cellular automata models and how one can use spatial metrics of remote sensing data to infer ecological features underlying the system.
