    When lives are threatened or lost due to catastrophic disasters, and when massive financial impacts are experienced, international emergency response teams rapidly mobilize to provide urgently required support. Satellite observations of affected areas often provide essential insight into the magnitude and details of the impacts. The large cost and high complexity of developing and operating satell...

    In this paper, we present a novel approach that views social media (SM) data as a human sensor network. These data can serve as a low-cost augmentation to an observing system, which can be incorporated into geophysical models together with other scientific data such as satellite observations and sensor measurements. As a use case scenario, we analyze the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster. We ga... View full abstract»

    Remotely sensed vegetation measurements for the last 30 years combined with other climate data sets such as rainfall and sea surface temperatures have come to play an important role in the study of the ecology of arthropod-borne diseases. We show that epidemics and epizootics of previously unpredictable Rift Valley fever (RVF) are directly influenced by large-scale flooding associated with the El ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents scattering power decomposition images of fully polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data for disaster monitoring. Utilization of fully polarimetric data can derive full color images with red-green-blue color coding, red for the double-bounce power, green for the volume scattering power, and blue for the surface scattering power, for which each color brightness correspond...

    The earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011 killed more than 15 000 people in Eastern Japan. The importance of remote sensing in understanding the damage caused by natural disasters is quite significant, and many data sets were acquired after the events. In this paper, we demonstrate the importance and the potential of full polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images for damage assessment.... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a survey of the techniques and data sets used to evaluate earthquake damages using remote sensing data is presented. After a few preliminary definitions about earthquake damage, their evaluation scale, and the difference between identification of damage “extent” and identification of damage “level,” the advantages and limits of different remote sensing da...

  • GEOSS-Based Thermal Parameters Analysis for Earthquake Anomaly Recognition

    Although earthquakes are difficult to be predicted because of the complexity of the Earth system and the uncertainty of seismogenic processes, GEOSS provides multiple sources of observation data and brings a possibility to extract a thermal anomaly that would have a significant effect on earthquake prediction. Referring to the analysis on the lithosphere-coversphere-atmosphere (LCA) coupling due t... View full abstract»

    Ash, tephra, and gas ejected during explosive eruptions pose a major far-reaching threat to population, health, and air traffic. Lava flows, lahars, and floods from ice-capped volcanos, as well as landslides that have a potential for tsunami generation if they reach into sea or lakes, can also have a major influence. Remote sensing contributes to the mitigation of these hazards through the use of ... View full abstract»

    Oil spills on the sea surface are observed relatively often. Pollution due to either accidents or deliberate oily discharges from ships represents a serious threat to the marine environment. Operational oil spill monitoring is currently done using a combination of satellite monitoring and aircraft surveillance. The combined use of satellite-based synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images and aircraft ... View full abstract»

    Satellite remote sensing missions devoted to Earth observation (EO) currently offer a unique capability to monitor the evolution of the Earth's surface by providing temporally repetitive views at the desired (global, regional, or local) spatial scale. This wealth of remote sensing data conveys a huge potential for preventing, monitoring, and managing natural or man-made disasters. Specifically foc... View full abstract»
