    Since 2016, EuroSDR has recognised contemporary PhD theses that have significantly contributed to the development of geoinformation science in the context of national mapping and cadastral agencies (NMCAs). In order to enhance collaboration between European academia and NMCAs, as well as to engage young scientists in its research endeavours, EuroSDR is pleased to announce its 2018 competition:

    2018 EuroSDR Award 
    for the best PhD thesis related to geoinformation science

    In order to be eligible, a PhD thesis should have been successfully defended in the period from January 2017 to August 2018. The PhD topic should be related to one or more of the research areas covered by the EuroSDR commissions (see The call is restricted to applicants that completed their PhD study in Europe. Applications should consist of:

    • A cover letter describing the main contribution/impact of the research contained in the thesis from a NMCA perspective (up to 300 words in English);
    • A PDF copy of the successfully defended thesis (in any European language);
    • An extended abstract of the thesis (1 000 – 1 500 words in English);
    • A short video presentation describing the research of the thesis (maximum 3 minutes in English);
    • A certificate evidencing the date of the successful PhD defence;
    • Independent reviews of the thesis (if available, for example from the thesis examiners);
    •  Curriculum Vitae of the applicant.

    All application material must be sent to the EuroSDR secretariat ( to arrive no later than 31st August, 2018. Incomplete applications will not be considered. The submitted application material will be evaluated by a committee approved by the EuroSDR Board of Delegates. Notification of the selected thesis will be issued by 5th October, 2018.

    The author of the successful PhD thesis will receive an award of 500 EUR and be invited to present his/her work at the 133rd EuroSDR Board of Delegates meeting, to be held in Berlin from 14th to 16thNovember, 2018.

    The NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) offers US and international scientists the opportunity to advance their research while contributing to NASA's scientific goals. The NPP supports fundamental science; explores the undiscovered; promotes intellectual growth; and encourages scientific connections.

    The Earth Observations Research Program at GISS utilizes global measurements in order to understand the Earth system and interactions among its components as steps toward ultimately predicting Earth system behaviour. To achieve this goal, cloud, aerosol, water vapour, trace gas and isotope data obtained during campaigns which are normally focused on obtaining short-term process-oriented measurements, are analysed in the context of and complemented by longer-term satellite measurements. Ground-based and campaign data are also used to calibrate and validate the satellite-based measurements. Emphasis is placed on the analysis of multi- platform, multi-sensor radiance and polarization data sets and multi- sensor product development, accompanied by active utilization of these data and products in scientific research, modelling, synthesis, and diagnostic analysis to quantify change, characterize processes, and examine function within the Earth System over time with an emphasis on inter-annual and decadal scales. The program also includes development of techniques to infer global cloud properties from satellite radiance measurements as part of the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project. Read More

    The NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) offers US and international scientists the opportunity to advance their research while contributing to NASA's scientific goals. The NPP supports fundamental science; explores the undiscovered; promotes intellectual growth; and encourages scientific connections.

    New techniques and instrumentation are developed and applied for remote atmospheric measurements. Current research includes cloud and aerosol observations by space-based lidar such as the Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS) on the ISS (McGill and Yorks), development of future space lidar systems and advanced data processing algorithms (CATS, ACE, others), instrumentation operated from high-altitude NASA research aircraft (Cloud Physics Lidar, airborne HSRL and Doppler wind lidar, new systems in development), and a global network of ground based lidars (MPLNET, Welton). Active lidar sensing is employed in conjunction with advanced visible and IR sensors, and other atmospheric radiation measurements in atmospheric field programs. Development and application of new lidar technology is emphasised. This technology includes Doppler lidar for wind measurements, and development of new cloud-aerosol lidar techniques. We investigate and interpret observations from multiple sensors to characterize the physical, radiative, and dynamical cloud and aerosol properties. Mobile, ground-based, and airborne lidars are available for field campaign studies of clouds and aerosols. Read More
