Geoscience and Remote Sensing

A computational experiment has been performed in order to evaluate systematic errors of atmospheric Total Water Vapor (TWV) and integral Liquid Water Content (LWC) microwave radiometric retrieval from satellites by means of dual-frequency method (inverse problem).  The errors under consideration may arise due to the non-linearity of brightness temperature level on true liquid water and effective cloud temperature dependencies and due to neglecting the spatial distribution of cumulus clouds in the satellite microwave radiometer antenna field-of-view (FOV).


We propose a road intersection identification method based on spatial constraint relationships of vector data. To evaluate its wide applicability, OpenStreetMap (OSM) data from seven cities–Berlin, Beijing, London, Nanjing, New York City, Rome, and Shanghai–were employed to identify road intersections of these cities.


Gorakhpur is a city located in the north-eastern region of

Uttar Pradesh state of India. It is a sub-part of Purvanchal

region of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. In the south-western

part, Gorakhpur periphery spreads along Rapti river. In

the north-western region, Gorakhpur shares its periphery

with Chillua Tal. In the southern part, Ramgarh Tal with a

perimeter of 18 km is located.


Water Bodies:


+ Ramgarh Tal is a historically important heritage site and

is also a tourist attraction; spread over 700 hectares of


India is a sub-continent that stretches from Ladakh in

the North to Kanyakumari in the South and from

Gujrat in the West to Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland

and Manipur in the East. India is currently the

seventh largest country by land covering an area of

approximately 32,87,263 kms.


India's Space Strengths:

India is the fourth country in the world to have

destroyed a satellite of its own. India built the

record-breaking space capability of launching 104

satellites on a single Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle


Radio frequency interference (RFI) is a problem in microwave remote sensing even for sensors operating in the protected band at 1.4 GHz (L-band).  Unfortunately, little is known about the sources of the interference, which complicates the design of systems to deal with it.  The SMAP radiometer is unique in that it comprises an array of tools to detect RFI, including spectral information and kurtosis in addition to the more conventional time-domain thresholding.  This data set contains examples used in an investigation to determine if the kurtosis (K) can be combined with the information abo


This experiment was implemented to collect infrared images of the coal and gangue samples at the temperature of 323.15 K. Additionally, it showed that distinguishing between coal and gangue samples is feasible, although the area, thickness, and surface conditions were changed at a constant temperature during the process of capturing the infrared images. The coal and gangue were randomly collected from the same mine. The random samples had different weights, shapes, areas, thicknesses, and surface conations. 


This dataset contains 6 raw ground-penetrating radar (GPR) profiles (#9, #10, #11, #14, #25, #30) collected at 4 locations in the Wahiba Sands dune field of Oman in May of 2014. The survey was performed to assess the detectability of the water table within the first 100 meters in hyper-arid sandy formations by VHF sounding radar. Profiles #9-10-11 are three parts of the same track ascending a ~36-m tall dune, and used to assess the maximum GPR penetration depth at which the water table is still detectable.


We propose a coupled physics-driven and data-driven algorithm to improve standard deep learning workflow. In order to evaluate the proposed method, a 2.5D geological model including dip, fault and anisotropic formation is considered.  Comparing the inversion imaging performance of the proposed physics-driven method with the traditional classical residual network (Resnet), it shows a significant improvement in resistivity accuracy.
