15th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium

Jones, Benjamin
Announcing the 15th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium (ICRSS) to be held in Potsdam, Germany, from 10-14 September 2018 (flyer attached).

Conference Website: https://alaska.usgs.gov/science/geography/CRSS2018/index.php

Earth's Polar Regions feature cold-climate environments characterized by unique landscapes, biota, and processes. Many of these features and dynamics are Cryosphere-driven 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. 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>

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 symposium 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 co-operation in the circumpolar regions of the world.

Abstract Due Date: 15 May 2018
Registration deadline: 31 Jul 2018
Conference week: 10-14 Sep 2018

The 2018 symposium is hosted by the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research in the beautiful city of Potsdam, Germany.

We are looking foward to seeing you in Potsdam,
Guido Grosse (AWI, Chair) & Ben Jones (USGS, Co-Chair)
