Logo Potsdam Research Cluster for Georisk Analysis, Environmental Change and Sustainability (PROGRESS)
The BMBF funded "Potsdam Research Cluster for Georisk Analysis, Environmental Change and Sustainability" (PROGRESS) comprises the whole chain of natural hazard and geo-risk research spanning form process analysis to decision making. Research in project A1 - Satellite Remote Sensing - as part of geomonitoring aims at development and application of satellite remote sensing methods for characterization and monitoring of hazardous natural processes with the goal of improved hazard and risk assessment. Within A1 research at the Remote Sensing Section of the GFZ Potsdam focuses on remote sensing based analysis of landslides and glacier dynamics in Kyrgyzstan (Central Asia).
