Remote sensing – Exactly what is it? What kind of information can it provide end users? How can it help achieve environmental benefits? What types of technologies are used within remote sensing? And what are the emerging technologies within this arena?

Remote sensing is a technology that has the ability to increase the information available to monitor and detect environment change, thereby improving decision making in the management of land and water resources. In spite of the advances of remote sensing technology, its potential has not been fully utilised in the area of catchment management for example.

This conference will therefore focus on presenting a range of remote sensing applications from catchment and asset management, to more unusual applications such as archaeology which is of regulatory relevance to the water and environmental sectors.

Those who will benefit from this conference will include environmental regulators, water utilities and catchment management stakeholders.

Speakers include:

  • David Campbell, Principle Remote Sensing Scientist, APEM Ltd
  • Geoff Cooper-Smith, Engineering Deliery Manager, United Utilities
  • Karen Pinkerton, Lecturer, University of Liverpool
  • Josephine Janik, Archaeologist, Mott MacDonald
  • Neasa Revens, Catchment Advisor, Severn Trent Water
  • Remy Schilperoort, Royal HaskoningDHV
  • Crispin Hambidge, Geomatics, Environment Agency
