Action Group on Remote Sensing
The SCAR Action Group on Remote Sensing was established at the SCAR XXXII Meeting in Portland 2012 with the full name "Development of a satellite-based, Antarctic-wide, remote sensing approach to monitor bird and animal populations".
The Remote Sensing AG intends to focus on future developments in a number of fields:
The AG will focus in the future on such multi-disciplinary research and includes new and emerging research frontiers in Antarctic science. The AG will merge snow and ice studies with climate research, ice-ocean interaction, and animal monitoring via remote sensing. The next meeting will be during SCAR Biology Symposium in Belgium (2017) and the SCAR/IASC Conference in Davos (Switzerland) 2018.
