The purpose of this session is to explore how remote sensing and GIS can be integrated with various Rapid Environmental Impact Assessment (REA) methodologies for assessing the environmental effects of natural disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes. Discussion of application and case studies of such integration of GIS and RS with REA for post-crisis emergency management can not only help save lives during crisis but can also help emergency planners prepare, organize, and plan rescue and relief efforts for future disasters.
