05 - 28 November 2016An EOC scientist and her New Zealand partners are presently on Darwin Glacier in the Transantarctic Mountains. The measurements they collect there will facilitate the interpretation of satellite measurements and improve understanding of the behavior of outlet glaciers. In this blog she reports about the six-week campaign on the ice.
18 November 2016After many years of successful collaboration with the Center for Satellite Based Crisis Information (ZKI) at EOC, the aid organisation International Search and Rescue Germany (I.S.A.R.) and DLR signed an agreement on 18 November 2016, to intensify their future cooperation.
27 October 2016The winners of the "Copernicus Masters" competition for ideas were chosen on 25 October in Madrid. Hartmut Runge of the Earth Observation Center (EOC) was again successful, this time winning two awards. The competition has the goal of promoting new applications for satellite navigation and earth observation.
21 October 2016Developed and carried out under the leadership of the head of the remote sensing unit at Würzburg University and in collaboration with EOC, a new international Master of Science curriculum began this week at the Institute of Geography and Geology. EAGLE – Applied Earth Observation and Geoanalysis of the Living Environment – provides students from various disciplines with a detailed look at current research initiatives in earth observation.
18 October 2016On 13 October 2016 archaeologists from the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) and other scientists involved in archaeological excavations learned about the work of EOC and the potential of remote sensing. This is already the second workshop on this topic in Oberpfaffenhofen.
17 October 2016Since 2007 and 2010, the German TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X satellite missions have been leaving their mark on the international research scene in the form of unique earth observation data. Scientists from all over the world gathered at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen to attend one of the periodic "TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X Science Meetings" in order to share the results the obtained by using these data and to formulate specifications for future remote sensing technologies.
