The Indian Institute of Remote Sensing Applications (IIRS) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) are together organizing a One Day Workshop on Earth Observation Based Mapping, Monitoring and Modelling of Landslide: Recent trends and support to early warning system on April 21, 2021.
Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) under Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Department of Space, Govt. of India is a premier Training and Educational Institute set up for developing trained professionals in the field of Remote Sensing, Geoinformatics and GNSS Technology for Natural Resources, Environmental, and Disaster Management.
A landslide early-warning system is envisaged as a system capable of modelling landslide occurrences and provide timely advance warning about the impending danger. It can be for an individual landslide where a warning is based on movement sensors or for small areas for one or more landslides where a warning is based on rainfall threshold or for a very large area using weather prediction.
In the Indian context, the state of Uttarakhand has emerged as the hotspot of landslide disasters. In this context, the proposed workshop is envisaged to showcase advancements made in mapping, monitoring and modelling aspects of landslide and deliberate on the support to the development of early warning system.
4 lectures and Panel Discussion (1 hr each) + one GL (45 Mins)
