International Workshop «Alpine hazard Remote Sensing and Modeling»
The Ulugh Beg Astronomical Institute of the Uzbekistan Academy of Sciences (UBAI) will bring together scientists from all professions and applications that deal with use of remote sensing data and modeling to study alpine hazards and glaciers. The Workshop will be held 12-13 June, 2023 in Tashkent. Due to ongoing collaborative works with scientists of the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF and CERC in the frame of the UNIGE project “Snow avalanche hazard assessment in Uzbekistan applying multitemporal radar images and numerical models” and with the Remote Sensing Technology Institute of the DLR on using SAR data in glacier studies, the Workshop will aim to exchange knowledge and scientific opinions in the fields of studies in Europe and Central Asian region and expand close and fruitful collaboration between the scientific personnel and potential stakeholders that is important for future handling of natural hazards.

Received benefits from learning the experience of European institutions in mountain hazard remote sensing and modeling will allow reducing the natural risks and mitigate catastrophic consequences in Uzbekistan.

Online Seminar 9th February 2023 «Reinventing Space Weather with Artificial Intelligence»
Thursday, 9th February 2023 | 17h CET | 11h EST Online Seminar with Enrico Camporeale «Reinventing Space Weather with Artificial Intelligence». In the last few years machine learning techniques have proven capable of forecasting space weather events with a much higher accuracy with respect to long-used traditional empirical and physics-based models. Even though very few operational models are currently empowered by machine learning, it appears to be unavoidable that the community will embrace in the near future such powerful techniques. Indeed, it is hard to imagine the future of space weather without machine learning. Presently, we are moving one step further from the initial ‘early-adopter’ stage, where proof-of-principles models were elaborated and tested, and more consideration is being given to the issues of reliability, uncertainty, and trustworthiness of machine learning models, finding the right balance between physics priors and data-driven discovery. In this talk the speaker will present the state-of-the-art of machine learning applications for space weather problems and will discuss a few challenges and opportunities that this field presents to us.

Online Seminar 19th January 2023 "Satellite Drag Effects on Satellite Operations and Debris in Low Earth Orbit"
Online Seminar with Eelco Doornbos (Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute Satellites in low Earth orbit travel through the uppermost layer of the neutral atmosphere, where their movement is affected by variations in the density and wind. These variations affect the amount of fuel required by active satellites to fulfil their mission, as well as the duration that debris objects remain in space. The number of objects in low Earth orbit has been rapidly increasing. With it, concerns over the long-term sustainability of the use of this region of space have been on the rise as well. The trend in the number of objects is due to the ever increasing relevance of satellite missions to our society, combined with technological developments such as miniaturisation and the rise of mega-constellations. But also in-orbit breakups of rocket stages and satellites have been major contributors. In this talk, the speaker will provide an overview of the physics and technology related to this topic, as well as the ways in which international collaboration will be essential to provide solutions.

SAR Analytics Symposium 2022 - October 20-21 Join leading SAR analytical thought leaders in Berlin, Germany and learn how to create solutions that deliver real value with SAR data. Attendees will glean knowledge and ideas from other successful real-world analytical applications. Displaying the New James Webb Space Telescope Images in IDL and ENVI NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is the largest optical telescope in space, and some datasets from the telescope are already available to be downloaded. Both IDL and ENVI include many tools that allow us to read, display and analyze the data, practically from the moment the images and spectral data are acquired in space. Predicting Landslides Using SAR Data Predicting the occurrence of a landslide event, both where and when it will occur, remains a challenge. However, using remote sensing techniques, satellite data and numerical simulation, broad predictions about the day and path of landslides can be estimated, which can assist with disaster management and subsequent recovery.

Uzbek girls launched their nanosatellite into the stratosphere
On 8 May 2022, 20 girls from different regions of Uzbekistan, participants of the UniSat (Uni stands for UNICEF, Sat stands for satellite) educational program, launched their ultra-modern nanosatellite into the stratosphere in Navoiy region. With support of the specialists from UzHydromet, the girls will analyze the meteorological data collected. The Navoi region was chosen as a launch site due to the suitable terrain, a large number of innovative and technological projects. The launch took place under the supervision of specialists from the air navigation services, because according to the instructions, it is necessary to “close” the sky for aircraft over the launch site. The nanosatellite was in the stratosphere for about 2 hours and rose to a height of 11,6 km. Prior to the launch, 188 Uzbek girls aged 15-26 years old completed an online 4-month course on coding, engineering and data analysis. Top 20 girls selected, took part in a 10-day hands-on workshop on building, launching the nanosatellite and analyzing the data obtained in Almaty, Kazakhstan jointly with their peers from Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.

Estimation of the integrated water vapor above Maidanak observatory
The molecules of water in the atmosphere absorb electromagnetic radiation in some spectral lines. They cause significant weakening of starlight intensity during the red and infrared-range astronomical observations. In spite of overall dry conditions of Maidanak, the night-time variations of the Integrated Water Vapor (IWV) are very important, because taking this effect of atmospheric extinction into account gives much benefit to precise photometry of celestial objects.
