Management and Mitigation of Natural Disasters

- true natural disasters

- degradation of natural resources and the quality of the environment

- threats to food security and human health

slide11

Management and Mitigation of Natural Disasters

- spatial information: RS & GIS - natural resources & environment: RS & GIS

- weather-related disasters (cyclones, drought, floods): SATMET

- communication & navigation: SATCOM

- climate change, e.g., sea-level rise and threats to food security: Space Science

slide12

In addition to PG/M.Tech. Courses, CSSTEAP also conducts short term courses/ Workshops in areas of RS & GIS, SATCOM, SATMET and Space Science disciplines at regular intervals in all the host institutions.
