The Intelligent Remote sensing and geospatial Information Science (IRIS) lab, a research led by Professor Jungho Im (Department of Urban and Environmental Engineering, UNIST) has announced that its researchers have recently been honored for scientific achievements and contributions.
Professor Jungho Im (Department of Urban and Environmental Engineering, UNIST) has been awarded with the Best Paper Award at the 2022 Annual Fall Meeting of Korean Society of Remote Sensing (KSRS), which took place in Busan from November 7 to 9, 2022.
This award is given to Professor Im in recognition of academic achievements from previous studies about the status and prospects for drought forecasting based on satellite data. This has been published in the August 2022 issue of Korean Journal of Remote Sensing (Vol. 37, Issue 4).
JuHyun Lee (Department of Urban and Environmental Engineering, UNIST) has won the Best Paper Presentation Award from the 2022 Annual Conference of GeoAI Data Society, held in Jeju Island from November 15 to 18, 2022. This award has been bestowed to her for demonstrating outstanding presentation under the theme of “Deep learning-based Monitoring of Overshooting Tops (OTs)” at the conference.
Meanwhile, the IRIS lab utilizes remote sensing, GIS modeling, and AI techniques to broaden and deepen their understanding of the Earth sciences under climate variability/change, and leverages this knowledge to better monitor and predict natural hazards in the environment.
