Pecora 20 Conference: Observing a Changing Earth

With emphasis on recent significant developments in remote sensing, the theme of Pecora 20 is 'Observing a Changing Earth: Science for Decisions…Monitoring, Assessment, and Projection'. This conference will offer a program on applications of satellite and other Earth observations to monitor, assess, and perform projections of future land and water resources, as well as big data and other analytical technologies to improve decision making utilizing satellite data.

The Pecora Symposium series was established by the USGS and NASA in the 1970s as a forum to: (1) foster the exchange of scientific information and results derived from applications of Earth observing data to a broad range of land-based resources; and (2) discuss ideas, policies, and strategies concerning land remote-sensing.

Land remote-sensing data users, researchers, applications scientists, producers, managers, and policymakers are invited to participate in this important symposium by submitting an abstract for a paper or poster. Abstracts must be submitted by 1 July, with reviews and decisions made by 1 August.

Half-day workshops will also be held all day Monday and on Tuesday morning (13–November), and workshop proposals can be submitted until 1 July, with reviews and decisions made by 1 August.
