Dear Colleagues,

We would like to encourage you to contribute to the following session as part of the EGU General Assembly 2016 (17-22 April 2016, Vienna, Austria):

"Low cost sensor systems and open source solutions for monitoring and assessment in the geosciences"

Please visit: http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2016/session/20730

Convenors: Pauline Miller, Amy Woodget, Matthias Kunz, Natan Micheletti

Deadline for abstracts: 13 January 2016, 13:00 CET
Abstract submissions: http://egu2016.eu/abstract_management/how_to_submit_an_abstract.html

Session details:
Low-cost sensor systems are enabling improved monitoring and assessment of natural phenomena and processes related to geoscience applications. This includes systems based on close range photogrammetry (including smartphones, and kite/balloon platforms), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), sensor networks (e.g. GPS/GNSS, geotechnical, soil moisture, etc.), mobile apps and their interface with ICT approaches to enable remote operation and/or real-time monitoring of events such as landslide hazard, flood risk, soil moisture, glacier dynamics etc. In many cases, it is underlying ICT infrastructure and processing solutions which enables such approaches. This includes the tremendous growth in open source software which is facilitating greater access to powerful computational approaches. These emerging technologies are increasingly affordable, and provide new opportunities to investigate surface change and other processes, or mitigate impacts of extreme events. This session welcomes submissions related to such developments, and their implementation for enhanced assessment and monitoring in geoscience applications.

We hope to see you in Vienna!

Best Regards,

Pauline Miller, Amy Woodget, Matthias Kunz, Natan Micheletti
