The Intelligent Remote sensing and geospatial Information Science (IRIS) lab, led by Professor Jungho Im in the Department of Urban and Environmental Engineering at UNIST has announced that four of its researchers, have recently been honored at the 65th Annual Academic Conference of Korean Society for Atmospheric Environment (KOSAE), which took place in Songdo Convensia from October 26 to 28, 2022. The award recipients are EunJin Kang (Excellence Award), HyunYoung Choi (Participation Award), YeJin Kim (Participation Award), and SangHyeon Song (Participation Award).
EunJin Kang was given the Excellence Award for suggesting a novel method to calculate the aerosol optical depth (AOD) in East Asia by applying artificial intelligence (AI) to Polar Orbit Satellite Data. Through this, she analyzed the influence between variables that could not be explained in existing AI techniques using explainable AI techniques.
HyunYoung Choi was given the Participation Award for proposing a novel method to estimate the ultra-fine dust (PM 2.5) concentration, using machine learning and top of atmosphere (TOA) reflectance. YeJin Kim also won the Participation Award for successfully measuring the concentrations of ground-level ozone with improved accuracy, using numerical weather prediction data, as well as an ensemble machine learning technique.
SangHyeon Song was given the Participation Award for demonstrating the estimation of spatially continuous daytime and nighttime particulate matter concentrations, using GK-2A satellite data and machine learning over East Asia.
