Participation in the conference "Earth Remote Sensing (ERS 2014) - Today and Tomorrow"

At the Department of Forestry, forest management and forest inventory Siderenkova EM participated in the conference "Earth Remote Sensing (ERS 2014) - Today and Tomorrow" and in the international exhibition in the framework of remote sensing "METEOREX 2014" held from July 7 to 9. METEOREX-exhibition of instruments, systems, equipment and services in the fields of hydrology, hydrometeorology, environmental monitoring, agriculture and forestry. Held every few years in different countries - participants of the WMO (185 countries) and becomes a meeting of representatives from all sectors of the economy that use remote sensing technology. Organizers «METEOREX 2014" - Roscosmos, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Roshydromet IMD Expo Exhibition Company Eurasia.

Conference "ERS-today and tomorrow" has become part of the international exhibition «METEOREX 2014" and cover a wide range of topics. 42 reports were presented at the 5 plenary sessions: "ERS for solving problems of hydrometeorology and forecasting, control and elimination of emergency situations", "Operational Land Survey for regional monitoring and environmental projects," "geoportal technology, integration of satellite images, GIS and WEB technologies" "Modern technologies and the means for receiving and processing of remote sensing data", "Application of remote sensing for the problems of agriculture and forestry." The conference was attended by over 120 representatives of organizations from Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine, United States and Japan.

The conference covered a wide range of issues on the application of remote sensing in forestry to determine the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of forests, assess the damage caused to forests fires, forest diseases, air pollution, illegal logging.

Were also affected by the proliferation of remote sensing data in Russia, namely: lack of domestic remote sensing data on the speed and volume of solutions for monitoring tasks, the lack of an industry standard of quality in relation to the products of remote sensing data, the need for technological modernization of infrastructure data. In discussions marked solutions critical issue - remove excessive restrictions on the dissemination of remote sensing and providing consumers Russian domestic data with modern satellite systems "Resource-DK", "Meteor-M", "Electro-L", "Canopus-V", " Resource-P.
