2015 UAVSAR Workshop
Friday, October 16, 2015 @NASA Ames

October 13-16
NASA Ames Conference Center, Moffett Field, CA

The third UAVSAR Workshop will promote information exchange between new and advanced users of airborne SAR data. Poster sessions and short talks will cover the fields of solid earth, cryosphere, hydrology, terrestrial ecology, and land cover / land use change. Workshop participants can also attend hands-on tutorials to learn how to produce high-level products with UAVSAR data.

The NASA Ames Conference Center has an information page on lodging options.

Registration is now closed.


Remote participation options: Friday morning talks will be streamed live. A subset of posters and tutorial activities will be posted on this website after the conclusion of the workshop.

Tuesday - Thursday
Oct 13-15
  • Participants are invited to register for and attend the NISAR Applications Workshop
  • Posters will include a Research with UAVSAR session
