Message from the DirectorImproving relations between humans and our earth using satellite remote sensing technology
Our center aims to further develop satellite remote sensing utilization techniques, as well as train scientists and engineers in the field, spreading satellite remote sensing utilization across the entire globe. The benefits that remote sensing technology offers are immeasurable, ranging from helping protect peoples' lives in disaster areas to stable harvesting of foods.
In addition, remote sensing can contribute to environmental conservation across the globe by providing accurate information on environmental issues such as illegal deforestation and marine pollution. There are many potential global issues looming in our future, and we believe that with sensor improvement and analysis development, satellite remote sensing will play a major role in the solution of these significant issues. We see great potential for the future of remote sensing techniques. We at Yamaguchi University are committed to publishing the newest, cutting edge research results satellite remote sensing data and fostering world-class specialists who will become global leaders in the field.
