Agenda

InSAR Workshop
October 20-22, 2004
Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach
Oxnard, CA


Day 1 (October 20)
SAR, InSAR, and Science

Morning Moderator: Andrea Donnellan

8:00

Breakfast

9:00

Welcome and purpose

  1. Inform community of state of the art and mission opportunities
  2. Receive from community assessment of science challenges and needs for InSAR

Andrea Donnellan

9:15

Charge to discipline groups

  1. What are the "grand challenges" in each area?
  2. How can radar sensors help?
  3. Role for existing data, sensors, new sensors

Bernard Minster

9:30

Example discipline goals and needs: SESWG report

Mark Simons

9:45

Example use of existing resources: RAMP and MAMM

Ken Jezek, Waleed Abdalati

10:00

Workshop Approach

  1. Define science challenges
  2. Assess utility/desirability of existing platforms/data
  3. Begin with "baseline" technology: L-band InSAR
  4. How augmented/changed for science goals?

Bernard Minster

Second Breakout session:

  1. Refine "challenges." What science goals can be met with:
    1. access to existing data archives
    2. cooperative use of existing satellites
    3. new radar missions and sensors
  2. What is possible with additional frequencies/polarizations?
  3. What infrastructure needs development?
  4. What derived products are needed?
  5. How about "near-real-time"?
  6. Other questions - What will be needed as technology for:
    1. Access to data through databases and the web
    2. Software for data mining and data exploration
    3. Software for simulating, interpreting, visualizing data
