Avik Bhattacharya (M’08-SM’16) received the integrated M.Sc. degree in Mathematics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India, in 2000 and the Ph.D. degree in remote sensing image processing and analysis from Télécom ParisTech, Paris, France, and the Ariana Research Group, Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA), Sophia Antipolis, Nice, France, in 2007.
He is currently an Associate Professor at the Centre of Studies in Resources Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (CSRE, IITB), Mumbai, India. Before joining IITB, he was a Canadian Government Research Fellow at the Canadian Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) in Ottawa, ON, Canada. He received the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada visiting scientist fellowship at the Canadian national laboratories, from 2008 to 2011. His current research interests include SAR polarimetry, statistical analysis of polarimetric SAR images, applications of Radar Remote Sensing in Agriculture, Cryosphere, Urban and Planetary studies.
Dr. Bhattacharya is the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS (GRSL). He was an Associate Editor of IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS. He has been the Guest Editor of the special issue on “Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing in India” in IEEE JOURNAL OF SELECTED TOPICS IN APPLIED EARTH OBSERVATIONS AND REMOTE SENSING (J-STARS), 2017. He is one of the guest editors of the special stream on “Advanced Statistical Techniques in SAR Image Processing and Analysis” in IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS, 2018. He is the Founding Chairperson of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) Chapter of the Bombay Section. He is currently leading the Microwave Remote Sensing Lab (www.mrslab.in) at CSRE, IITB.
About the Publication
The IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS is a monthly publication for short papers (maximum length 5 pages) addressing new ideas and formative concepts in remote sensing as well as important new and timely results and concepts.
Papers should relate to the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as applied to sensing the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, and the processing, interpretation, and dissemination of this information.
The technical content of papers must be both new and signiﬁcant. Experimental data must be complete and include sufficient description of experimental apparatus, methods, and relevant experimental conditions. GRSL encourages the incorporation of “extended objects” or “multimedia” such as animations to enhance the shorter papers. As soon as papers are accepted and materials are available at IEEE, they will appear online through the IEEE digital library Xplore.
