    This will be the 10th biannual AARSE conference and will continue the excellent tradition of gathering world-class scientists, engineers and educators engaged in the fields of remote sensing and environment. We believe that the scientific themes of this event, focusing on the characterization of dynamic Earth processes, assimilation, today’s and upcoming satellite missions and integrated Earth observing systems will allow the formation of a most interesting technical program.
