Invitation: Colloquium Talk by Prof. Shunichi Koshimura on Earth Observation in Tsunami Disaster Response and Management

We cordially invite all interested to our forthcoming talk in the GIScience colloquium next Monday, January 30, on the use of satellite imagery, which is becoming more and more accessible and available in near real-time, for risk analysis and disaster response. Prof. Shunichi Koshimura presents evidence of the value of earth observation, used in combination with local information sources, for supporting disaster management in all phases of an earthquake and tsunami disaster. Disaster risk reduction, aided by space-based applications integrated with real-time simulation, is another focus of his talk.
