15th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium (ICRSS)


Datum: 10. - 14 September 2018

Ort: Potsdam

This symposium deals specifically with remote sensing applications in the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic.

The theme of the 15th ICRSS in Potsdam, Germany, is Polar Regions in Transformation - Climatic Change and Anthropogenic Pressures.






Remote Sensing of Earth's Polar Regions

Earth's Polar Regions feature coldclimate environments characterized by unique landscapes, biota, and processes. Many of these features and dynamics are Cryospheredriven and either are already subject to or have the potential for fundamental and rapid changes in a warming world. Earth observation technologies provide crucial tools to understand and quantify these changes. The ICRSS deals specifically with remote sensing of the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic. We also welcome contributions focusing on the third pole of Earth, the high mountain regions.

This symposium will be of interest to scientists, scholars, and industry and government professionals involved in studying and quantifying Arctic and Antarctic change, renewable and non-renewable resource management, and development of new technologies and methods targeting remote sensing observations of polar environments. The ICRSS will provide a platform for the exchange of current applied research and best practices, the presentation of new technology and further innovation, and the advancement of international cooperation in the circumpolar regions of the world.
