IGARSS 2015 - 2015 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium

The Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) seeks to advance science and technology in geoscience, remote sensing and related fields using conferences, education and other resources. Its fields of interest are the theory, concepts and techniques of science and engineering as they apply to the remote sensing of the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation and dissemination of this information.


2013 21st International Conference on Geoinformatics

GIS in Regional Economic Development and Environmental Protection under Globalization


2011 Atlanta Conference on Science and Innovation Policy

The confrence will explore the broad range of capacity-related issues central to the structure, function, performance and outcomes of the STEM innovation enterprise.

  • 2009 Atlanta Conference on Science and Innovation Policy

    Science and innovation are aimed at change new knowledge, new techniques, and fresh approaches to addressing the major challenges facing humanity. The 2009 Atlanta Conference on Science and Innovation policy will focus on ways that science and innovation policies can shape the future by setting goals such as safety, economic security, improved health, and environmental quality and by designing programs to reach these goals.

Irradiation Nation [food safety]

H. Goldstein IEEE Spectrum, 2003

Electron beams and X-rays might make some foods safer to eat. But is irradiation a silver bullet or an industrial-strength placebo for killer contaminants in the food chain? This paper discusses the technology and issues involved in this aspect of food safety. Even though it is highly effective at killing bugs and bacteria, irradiation is at best only a partial ...


Data partnership synergy: The Cropland Data Layer

Rick Mueller; Claire Boryan; Robert Seffrin 2009 17th International Conference on Geoinformatics, 2009

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA)/National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) has generated the cropland data layer (CDL) product for more than twelve years, providing annual geospatial updates of the agricultural landscape across the US Heartland. The CDL program delivers acreage estimates based on regression modeling for decision support and provides a crop-specific geospatial dataset for the public domain. This model ...


Motivating and keeping software developers

K. Whitaker Computer, 1997

Addresses the needs of those who are responsible for managing or leading computing professionals. This article is about motivating and rewarding software developers. This is especially difficult in a competitive job market that emphasizes high salaries and multiple opportunities for each software developer. Two important issues you need to handle are: making certain that developers understand their roles; and keeping ...


Foliar reflectance and fluorescence responses for plants under nitrogen stress determined with active and passive systems

E. M. Middleton; J. E. McMurtrey; P. K. E. Campbell; L. A. Corp; L. M. Butcher; E. W. Chapelle IGARSS 2003. 2003 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium. Proceedings (IEEE Cat. No.03CH37477), 2003

Leaves of corn (Zea mays L.) and soybean (Glycine max L.) plants were examined in a set of four experiments conducted in the summer of 2001 at USDA in Beltsville, MD. Red edge reflectance spectra and red (R) and far-red (FR) fluorescence emissions were acquired for adaxial and abaxial leaf surfaces, in conjunction with foliar chlorophyll content, photosynthetic capacity (Amax), ...


Structural and Fractal Dimensions are Reliable Determinants of Grain Yield in Soybean

A. A. Jaradat; D. Surek; D. W. Archer 2006 Second International Symposium on Plant Growth Modeling and Applications, 2006

Soybean [Glycin max (L.) Merr.] plants grown under five management strategies differed significantly in their geometric structures, and were classified with 75 to 100% correct classification, based on differences in their fractal dimension (Do), midday differential canopy temperature (dT), and canopy light penetration [Log(UIo)]. Single soybean plants grown under a conventional system using moldboard tillage developed complex geometric structures, with ...
