Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of Italian Society of Remote Sensing – AIT, the organizers invite you to attend the 10th AIT International Workshop “Planet Care from Space”. The event will take place in Cagliari (Italy), June 30 – July 2, 2020.

The AIT Workshops on Remote Sensing have a long and successful history. The first one was held in 1990, and from 2016 they subsequently took place every 2 years.

The 2020 Workshop will provide opportunities for presentations on a wide range of theoretical and applied topics. The theme of the AIT 2020 Workshop is “Planet Health” with specific focus on Geohazards and Climate Change, recognizing the important role of Remote Sensing technologies  and environmental data in science and our society.

Assegno di ricerca “Utilizzo di dati Copernicus per la caratterizzazione dei residui di bauxite in siti minerari abbandonati

Il 14 Ottobre è stato pubblicato il bando relativo ad un assegno di ricerca dal titolo “Utilizzo di dati Copernicus per la caratterizzazione dei residui di bauxite in siti minerari abbandonati”. La tematica riguarda l’utilizzo di dati da telerilevamento (in particolare Copernicus ma non solo) per lo studio di siti minerari abbandonati, con la duplice finalità di un monitoraggio ambientale sulla contaminazione delle aree adiacenti e di una valutazione delle potenzialità di sfruttamento dei materiali di scarto come risorse secondarie.

L’assegno è inserito nell’ambito di un progetto di ricerca dal titolo “Characterisation of bauxite residuals in abandoned sites for contamination monitoring and raw material recovery using Copernicus data”, finanziato da EIT Raw Materials, ed è riservato a candidati in possesso del titolo di Dottore di Ricerca. Le attività si svolgeranno presso il dipartimento di ingegneria Civile, Chimica, Ambientale e dei Materiali (DICAM) dell’Università di Bologna. La scadenza per presentare le candidature è fissata al 28/10/2019. Per maggiori informazioni è possibile consultare il bando e la tematica di ricerca completa.

The Italian Society of Earth Observation (AIT) starts a new editorial line with the periodic Trends in Earth Observation (ISSN 2612-7148).

Directly edited and published by AIT Trends in Earth Observation is aimed at hosting peer-review contributions which may not be suitable for publishing in traditional scientific Journals. The Volumes are intended to be published every two years.

Trends in Earth Observation is under evaluation by Web of Science for Impact Factor and by SCOPUS.

The first Volume entitled Earth observation advancements in a changing world (ISBN: 978-88-944687-1-7, DOI: 10.978.88944687/17) is available on line here.
