CyCLOPS at 41th EARSeL Symposium 2022

The CyCLOPS team has participated at the 41th EARSeL Symposium 2022 in Paphos, Cyprus between 13-16.09.2022. Four research studies were presented as oral presentations. 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.

  • Dr. Chris Danezis gave a presentation in the Disaster Risk Reduction Special Session, entitled “The Establishment of the CyCLOPS Integrated Strategic Research Infrastructure Unit for the Geohazard Monitoring Activities: Considerations, Performance Assessment and Initial Results”. He had the opportunity to promote CyCLOPS infrastructure and highlight the importance and benefit for Cyprus from establishing a strategic infrastructure unit for natural hazards funded under the CyCLOPS Project. 
  • Mr. Nikolas Christoforou, PhD Candidate, launched his findings in “A Review Of Current GNSS Interference Detection and Localisation Techniques Towards the Development of Resilient GNSS Strategic Infrastructure”.

15th of September 2022

  • Mrs. Kyriaki Fotiou, PhD Candidate, participated in the Special Session on New trends in Geological Remote Sensing with two presentations. The first presentation was titled “Satellite-Based Monitoring of an Active and Fast-Moving Landslide using PSI and DInSAR Analysis: The case study of Pissouri Village in Cyprus”. The specific study presents the preliminary findings of a spaced-based monitoring analysis carried out by means of Differential Interferometry (DinSAR) and Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) using the newly found CyCLOPS strategic infrastructure unit’s equipment. Regarding the second presentation focused on the Potentiality of landslide detection in Open-Pit Mines using Satellite-Based techniques: The case study of Vasiliko Open-Pit Mine in Cyprus”, the investigation of the assessment to detect and monitor large- or small-scale landslides in open-pit limestone mines, using the Sentinel-1 constellation was presented.
