AWI and USGS, with support from GFZ and the University of Potsdam, are jointly organizing the 15th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium (ICRSS) in Potsdam, Germany, from September 10-14, 2018. The theme of the 15th ICRSS is "Polar Regions in Transformation - Climatic Change and Anthropogenic Pressures".

Abstracts Due Date Extended to 31 May 2018.

Confirmed keynote speakers so far:

  • Charles Miller, NASA / JPL: Deputy Science Lead, Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE)
  • Tobias Bolch, University of Zurich, Switzerland: Leader of the research group "Mountain Cryosphere"
  • Martha Raynolds, University of Alaska Fairbanks: Research Associate in the Alaska Geobotany Center
  • Thomas Krumpen, Alfred Wegener Institute: Research Associate in the Sea Ice Physics Group

Conference Focus: 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 as well as the third pole (high mountain regions).
