(Feb. '17) GREL faculty and students' research on studying upwelling and physical oceanography in the Arabian Sea was higlighted and presented as a poster at the 10th Coastal Altimetry Workshop, held in Florence, Iraly. This research is being led by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi, and is supported by IFS and JAXA


(16-01-17) GREL is launching the 2nd Workshop on Workshop on Data Analysis Techniquesfor Remote Sensing & Geographic Information Science using MATLAB . This course will be led by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi, from 30th Jan. - 3rd Feb., 2017. Detailed course info and registration is available here. Last date for registration: 18th Jan., 2016.


(11-12-16) The ISNET / NARSS Seminar & Hands-on Training Workshop on Earth Remote Sensing with SAR has been successfully held at NARSS (National Authority for Remote Sensing & Space Sciences), Cairo, Egypt, from 27th Nov. - 1st Dec. The hands-on training workshop was conducted by GREL faculty member Dr. Waqas A. Qazi.


(20-10-16) Dr. Waqas A. Qazi delivered a guest talk at Dept. of Meteorology, COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Islamabad, on "SAR Remote Sensing Applicatons" during their monthly seminar series.


(04-07-16) GREL faculty member Dr. Rizwan Bulbul and MS student Ahsan Abbas recently completed formal scientific and technical review of the book "GeoProcessing with Python." This included testing the code, identifying / removing bugs, and identifying / installing required libraries.


(23-06-16) GREL is launching the 2nd Summer School on Earth Remote Sensing with Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). This course will be led by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi, from 1-5th Jan., 2016. Detailed course info and registration is available here. Last date for registration: 20th July, 2016.
