ICCEM to participate in the upcoming 36th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing


The LiDAR 1 and LiDAR 2 research teams of the Institute for Climate Change and Environmental Management will be participating in the 36th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS 2015), which will take place on October 19-23, 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Four selected papers are to bring insights into the challenges and opportunities of Remote Sensing and related geospatial technologies in building resiliency and encouraging economic growth and development in Asia with the theme “Fostering Resilient Growth in Asia”. Three of the research paper are funded by DOST and one paper was funded by PCAARRD, DOST.

The following are the papers to be presented:
