The mission of the Modeling in Remote Sensing Technical Committee (MIRS TC) is to serve as a
technical and professional forum for advancing the science of predicting remotely sensed observations from first principles theory.
The MIRS TC addresses the technical space between basic electromagnetic theory and data collected by remote sensing instruments. It focuses on models and techniques used to take geometric, volumetric
and material composition descriptions of a scene along with their EM (e.g., scattering, absorption, emission, optical BRDF, dielectric properties, etc.) attributes and then predict for a given remote sensing instrument the resulting observation.
