'Advances in geological remote sensing' is this year's theme for the Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG) AGM. The event to be held in Frascati, Italy, also includes the second OGEO workshop aimed at bridging the oil and gas sector with the EO Service community. The GRSG will address applied and fundamental research that explores the application of remote sensing in mapping, monitoring and understanding the relationship between geology and the environment.
