ISPRS Logo     ISPRS - Commission VIII - Remote Sensing Applications and Policies
    Working Group VIII / 5 - Energy and Solid Earth, 2008-2012
  
 

 

Our mission:

Our working group aims at building international awareness and uptake of a new generation of remote sensing and derived geoscience information for improved mapping and monitoring of the Earth and its geo-resources under the umbrella of the ISPRS and in co-operation with other national and international public and private organisations.

 

Terms of Reference:

  • Adopt remote sensing data to non-renewable resource exploration, exploitation and related environmental monitoring, especially energy (hydrocarbons, geothermal and uranium) and minerals (precious, base metals and commercial minerals).
  • Further the implementation and integration of higher level remote sensing products tailored for geological and geomorphological mapping, especially publicly available, continental-scale mapping opportunities.
  • Help facilitate the development of geological and geomorphological product standards and related error assessment derived from remote sensing data with Commission 7/3
  • Foster technology transfer through the sharing of convincing geological and geomorhological case histories derived from remote sensing data
  • Help develop mechanisms that facilitate the uptake of geologic and geomorphologic remote sensing information products into Earth science applications, especially understanding the 3D and 4D (temporal) nature of the solid Earth, such as tectonic activity, hydrocarbon and minerals systems, water catchment modelling and monitoring, soil processes ( erosion, acidity, salinity and carbon), and dune systems
  • Collaborate with other ICSU GeoUnions; collaborate with GEO and take part in GEO task where appropriate
