Five (5) research papers authored by AGST Lab Research Group (RG) members (former and current) were presented during the 3rd National Remote Sensing Conference (NRSC 2013). These papers were outputs of researches, projects and theses conducted at the AGST Lab. The NRSC 2013 was held from May 30-31, 2013 at the National Engineering Center Audio Visual Room, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City. The following are the papers that were presented:

    • The DREAM Program: A comprehensive approach towards generating flood information products and services for disaster mitigation
      • Presented by Dr. Enrico C. Paringit
    • Texture-based classification of 2006-2010 ALOS PALSAR 25m mosaic images for continuous land cover monitoring
      • Presented by Ms. Margie Parinas
    • Indirect Estimation of Structural Attributes of the Starch-rich Sago Palm through Analysis of Spectral Reflectance and Vegetation Indices
      • Presented by Engr. Meriam Makinano-Santillan
    • Reconstruction of the August 2012 Habagat Flooding in Marikina River: Flood Model Parameterization and Accuracy Assessment Based on Optical and SAR Image Analyses
      • Presented by Engr. Jojene R. Santillan
    • Monitoring the Spectral Response of Philippine Vegetation During the 2009-2010 El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Using Remote Sensing
      • Presented by For. Cristina Montoya

The NRSC is a yearly event spearheaded by the Philippine Remote Sensing Society (PhilRSS). This year’s NRSC was held with the theme “Remote Sensing for a Smarter Philippines”. Two international remote sensing experts gave plenary talks on the first day of the conference. They were: Dr. Josefino C. Comiso – Senior Scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and Dr. Kohei Cho – General Secretary, Asian Association on Remote Sensing and Dean, School of Information Science & Technology, Tokai University, Japan. Dr. Comiso talked about “Climate Change as Observed from Space” while Dr. Cho shared his research on “Monitoring the Damages and Recovery of the Japan Disaster from Space”.
