  Information - GM5.6 Remote Sensing of Rivers: Methods, Applications, and Theory (co-listed in HS)

Event Information
The session provides a broad overview of remote sensing applications in river environments. Papers cover the range of remote sensing data types and techniques, ranging from optical sensors to lidar, radar and sonar. Papers address methodological advances in remote sensing of river environments (which include the active channel and floodplain), new applications of remote sensing in river systems, or ways in which remote sensing can enhance our conceptual and theoretical understanding of rivers. The intent is to be inclusive in identifying the range of people, organizations and research directions related to remote sensing of rivers.
