Dear Colleagues, Students
I am indeed pleased to welcome you to the First IEEE Geoscience
and Remote Sensing Distinguished Speakers Lecture at Elizabeth City
State University. The Distinguished Speakers Program provides our
Society an opportunity to share exhilarating scientific and educational
ventures and advancements with the scientific and educational communities
in specific, and the interested public in general. A specific interest
of our Society is to feature these Distinguished Speakers Lectures
at HBCU and Minority Institutions, with the hope of spurring greater
interest and involvement in the field of Remote Sensing.
Today's speaker is Dr. Sonia Gallegos, whose topic will be "A
Real-Time Remote Sensing Algorithm for Spectral Attenuation Coefficient".
Dr. Gallegos is a scientist with the Naval Research Laboratory/Stennis
Space Center, and a new ex-officio member of the Geoscience and
Remote Sensing's Administrative Committee, which governs the Society.
I am happy that you could attend, and hope you enjoy.
