Presentation at GRSG Annual Conference

During 13th -15th December 2017 Jirathana Dittrich attended the Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG) 28th Annual Conference “Applied Geological Remote Sensing” in Lisbon, Portugal. Her presentation “Towards the Compilation of a Terrain Corrected Backscatter Database of Glacio-Volcanic Land Cover Types” highlighted preliminary results from SAR data analysis. This study aims to derive the normalized radiometric terrain corrected (RTC) backscatter for specific glacio-volcanic land cover types and subsequently to investigate the influence of RTC estimates in improving land cover types differentiation. Fruitful discussions with researchers from the fields of geology, geomorphology and remote sensing took place and new contacts were established.
