Black Sea Science 2024 1st round results

We are glad to announce that Sofia Drozd, a master’s student at the MMDA department, along with scientific supervisors Nataliia Kussul and Hanna Yailymova, entered the TOP-5 rating of the 1st stage of the International Competition of Student Research Papers “Black Sea Science 2024“!
In her work “Automated Detection and Assessment of War-Induced Damage to Agricultural Fields Using Satellite Imagery“, Sofia developed an automated technology for finding damaged agricultural lands using free satellite data.

Our team also made it to the second round of the competition, in which only 25% of participants (21 out of 84) made it. This undoubtedly shows the importance of Sophia’s scientific work and the significant contribution of our team to modern science and research on the impact of war on the environment.

We congratulate Sofia Drozd and her scientific supervisors on this achievement and wish them success in the 2nd round, which will take place on March 25-26!
