9th EARSeL Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow

"Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere: Monitor what is vanishing"

The cryosphere of the Earth is undergoing dramatic changes. Glaciers are retreating at accelerated rate and snow cover distribution and duration is changing with many significant side-effects (run-off, permafrost, albedo, etc.). Remote Sensing can provide the required data to study these changes of the cryosphere.

The 9th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) will focus on the latest developments in remote sensing of land ice and snow. Presentations are encouraged on all fields of research and applications with the focus on snow and ice as proxy for a changing cryosphere, methods for retrieving cryospheric parameters from various types of remote sensing data, theoretical basis of inversion methods and their application, state of the art of retrieval algorithms, data assimilation of remote sensing data and in situ observations in process models, and current and planned sensors for snow and ice.

Abstract submission deadline is 1 October 2019.
