1st Symposium of the Argentine Chapter of Geosciences and Remote Sensing Society


Due to their inherent complexity the Geosciences are difficult to define under the existing nomenclature. There are different academic and professional track the geoscientist undergoes, yet all of them gather and interpret data on the Earth and other planets. The profession includes atmospheric scientists, geologists, geochemists, geophysicists, hydrogeologists and hydrologists, meteorologists, oceanographers, paleontologists, petrologists, sedimentologists, seismologists, volcanologists, geographers, etc.
Our fields of interest are the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as they apply to the remote sensing of the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation and dissemination of this information.

There is a profound interdisciplinary nature of the GRSS, our members come from both engineering and scientific disciplinary backgrounds. Those with engineering backgrounds often support geoscientific investigations with the design and development of hardware and data processing techniques. Conversely, discipline scientists find in GRSS a forum for the dissemination and evaluation of remote sensing related work in these areas. This fusion of geoscientific and engineering disciplines gives GRSS a unique interdisciplinary character and an exciting role in furthering remote sensing science and technology.

The symposium is one of the first activities promoted by the newly formed Argentine chapter of the IEEE-GRSS which is currently in a consolidation and expansion stage.
