Remote sensing is a powerful monitoring tool able to image extended areas at low cost and with regular revisiting time. However, to face the current and expected future increase in the frequency of natural hazards, new technologies in remote and proximal sensing have been developed with the aims to improve the flexibility in data collections and resolution. A branch of these new developed technologies are the uncrewed aerial systems (UASs) equipped with different sensors (optical, microwave, near-infrared, thermal infrared sensors). They allow bridging the gap among spaceborne, airborne, and ground-based remote sensing data providing ultra-high resolution spatial data, with a significant advantage on the flexibility of flight scheduling and the environmental data collection. These multi-source UAS-sensing data drive new developments in the field of remote sensing applications, characterizing the fundamentals for geological risks prevention and supporting the decision makers to face them.
Contributions are expected, but not limited, to the most up to date research on remote sensing data exploitation and integration, aiming at the improvement of the knowledge of geological processes and related hazard for satellite remote sensing in terrain surveys before and after the geological phenomena (e.g. earthquake, landslide and volcanoes, subsidence,) in integration with UAS measurement systems.
