Join us to celebrate the breadth and excellence of Bournemouth University’s research as part of Interdisciplinary Research Week this May. This is an opportunity to spark new collaborations and ideas among our diverse research community.
This year we have a week long programme of lectures, demonstrations, discussions and a film, which will showcase the fantastic research which is being undertaken at the university.
This is the third in a series of blog posts which will highlight the events you can join throughout the week. The third event of the programme will take place on Tuesday 12th May, Andy Ford will be looking at ‘Taking a good long look at genocide victims from space.’
Locating clandestine mass-graves resulting from genocide is time consuming and problematic. For instance, some 3000 victims of the genocide in Bosnia (1992-95) are still missing. Locating graves is imperative for repatriating remains to families and for gathering evidence for war crimes tribunals. Forensic Scientists conventionally use a combination of local knowledge and opportune satellite snapshots in their search. We present a new, novel technique based on a time- series of satellite images long after burial took place, which is normally used by geographers to monitor the impact of climate change on vegetation around the world.
This event will take place on Talbot Campus in KG01 from 18:00pm to 19:00pm, with a Wine reception from 5:30pm. You can book your place by clicking here.
