EARSeL is a scientific network of European remote sensing laboratories, coming from both academia and the commercial/industrial sector, which covers all fields of geoinformation and earth observation through remote sensing.
Flood is one of the most common geohazards, which also costs most devastation to society. There are areas more vulnerable to floods, where measures are taken to mitigate the impacts, but further research is needed for identifying flood vulnerability in order to make communities in such vulnerable areas more resilient.
Early- and mid-career scientists, policy makers from developing countries with background of space technologies or disaster mitigation as an advantage; skills of fluent English communication required.
