NASA announced the selection of REASON (Radar for Europa Assessment and Sounding: Ocean to Near-surface) in the payload for the mission to the Jovianmoon Europa expected to be launched after 2020. REASON is an Ice Penetrating Radaraimed to study the sub-surface of Europa until a depth of 30 km!
The Principal Investigator of REASON is Prof. Donald Blankenship of University of Texas Austin. RSLab is deeply involved in REASON as this is the result of a long and intense activity of study and design of complex radar instruments for the study of the JupiterIce moons developed by a large team of international experts under the leadership of Prof. Blankenship and Prof. Bruzzone.

RSLab is involved in the Internationl Summer School for PhD students on “Data Fusion for Risk Mapping” that will be held on July 23-24 in Pavia, Italy. Dr. Bovolo will give a lecture on “Earth Observation Data Fusion for Natural Risk Management”
The school is organized by the prestigious IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society.

The Administrative Committee of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society has extended with an unanimous vote the term of Lorenzo Bruzzone as Editor-in-Chief of the prestigious IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine to December, 2017.

Lorenzo Bruzzone is the founder Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine (which is published since 2013).

The Second Prize for the Natural Science Award of Ministry of Education of China in 2014 was awarded to Dr. Chen Yang (currently Associate Professor at the College of Earth Sciences, Jilin University, China).

Dr. Chen Yang spent at RSLab six months during her PhD and six months as Postdoc researches. The paper Yang C, Bruzzone L, et al. “A fuzzy-statistics-based affinity propagation technique for clustering in multispectral images,” IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, 2010, 48(6): 2647-2659 was especially considered for this award. She published two more journal papers as outcome of the work developed in cooperation with RSLab.
