The rapid progress in ocean remote sensing in the 1980s provided the stimulus for constituting the Scientific Organizing Committee (SOC) of the Pacific (Pan) Ocean Remote Sensing Conference (PORSEC) during the International Space Year 1990. PORSEC is an organization dedicated to helping developing nations stimulate their science programs focused on the applications of remote sensing technology to Ocean Sciences. PORSEC has provided over a decade of effort with over thirty countries and agencies participating to advance the science capabilities in developing countries by organizing conferences once in two years.
The Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India is privileged to host PORSEC-2012, the Eleventh Biennial Conference with the Theme "Ocean Remote Sensing for Well-being of All" in Kochi, Kerala, India during November 05-09, 2012.
The conference will review and discuss the state of the art ocean remote sensing and will help scientists and students involved in ocean-atmosphere studies using remote sensing techniques to benefit from interactions with the experts participating from all over the globe. The conference will also provide an opportunity to showcase the research work carried out using remote sensing techniques from various satellite missions and the applications of ocean remote sensing for societal benefits.
