3rd India-UK Colloquium at PU
CHANDIGARH. Two days India - UK colloquium on Remote Sensing, Air Quality & Climate Change concluded today in Panjab University . The colloquium was jointly organised by Department of Environment Studies, Panjab University and Department of Community medicine and School of Public Health, PGIMER, Chandigarh in collaboration with Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Leicester, United Kingdom.

The colloquium attracted a diverse group of students, early-career and doctoral researchers, from environment, community medicine, public health and climate. total of 10 talks were presented, over 2 sessions with ample time for open discussions after each session. This colloquium is aimed to assess the state-of-art of the science of space based atmospheric measurements, greenhouse gases monitoring and management globally and in India, with special focus on remote sensing-based satellite approaches.

The overview of satellite data in Earth Observation applications for a better understanding of Earth's landscape and climate were explained by UK and Indian experts including Dr.Harjinder Sembhi and Professor Hartmut Boesch from University of Leicester, Dr.Ravindra Khaiwal from PGIMER, and Dr. Suman Mor from Panjab University.

Dr. Harjinder Sembhi from University of Leicester, UK, highlighted combining expert knowledge in Earth observation space sensors, highly accurate ground-based measurements with state-of-the-art models of the land surface to determine the climatic drivers and its relation to greenhouse gas emissions. She also explained the role of radiometer installed by University of Leicester, UK in district Fatehgarh Sahib to generate novel new datasets on heat stress, climate variability, water availability and irrigation scheduling.

Dr. Hartmut Boesch University of Leicester, UK, stressed that there is an urgent need to increase the coverage of ground-based in-situ and remote sensing networks to build more reliable models of the Earth system used to forecast our future climate and to support the development of appropriate emission reduction strategies. He also highlighted agricultural fires as one of the main sources of the greenhouse gas emission and introduced the audience with first GHG Satellite, GOSAT and talked about CO2 and CH4 emissions.

Dr. Ravindra Khaiwal, Department of Community Medicine and School of Public Health, PGIMER Chandigarh highlighted that the colloquium presents an exciting opportunity for the researchers to align their scientific expertise to understand and address the environmental challenges using remote sensing technology that offers cost effective solution to better understand the linkage between the air pollution and human health. Dr Khaiwal stressed on need to act now to give better future to our coming generations. Mega cities are like factories leading to emissions better inventory using satellite data that can be used to lookout point emission sources eg. landfills.

Dr Suman Mor, Panjab University emphasized that increasing agricultural production and industrialisation to meet the demands of growing population coupled with human-induced disturbances threaten the natural ecosystem in Indo- Gangetic region and stated that the programme of this kind aim to bring together the UK Earth observation data and the use of data will give us novel means of studying the sensitivity of this area to environmental changes.

Over 45 participants from various institutions attended the colloquium and learnt to utilize large scale satellite datasets to manage environmental resources.(updated on april 14th, 2019)
