Remote sensing satellites and the IDNDR: Limitations and prospects

Väinö Kelhä, Yrjö Rauste, Seppo Väätäinen, Atsushi Takeda

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    An overview of the status quo, technological gaps and as yet unrecognized potentials in exploitation of the remote sensing satellites for reducing natural disasters is given. Many demonstrations and studies have proved the feasibility of the data gathered by remote sensing satellites for disaster management purposes. To supplement earth resource satellites, dedicated sensor systems and integration of other data sources are needed to improve disaster management and to fill in technological gaps.
