Welcome to the 9th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium. This conference deals specifically with remote sensing applications in the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic. It will provide an international forum for the discussion of work currently being carried out in the circumpolar regions of the world in the following topic areas:

  • Environmental monitoring
  • Wildlife management and habitat protection
  • Arctic vegetation
  • Land and water management
  • Pollution control
  • Snow and ice
  • Climatology
  • Oceanography
  • Geology
  • Mineral and oil and gas exploration
  • Archaeology
  • Data processing
  • Geographic Information System and Web based portals
  • Boreal processes that have direct influence on Arctic processes
  • International Polar Year (IPY 2007/2008)

This symposium will be of interest to scientists, scholars, and industry and government professionals involved in renewable and non-renewable resource management in both polar environments. The symposium will provide a forum for the exchange of current applied international research, the presentation of new technology, and the advancement of internal co-operation in the circumpolar regions of the world. It will also serve as an excellent way to report on progress leading to studies that are of particular interest to International Polar Year activities that will be conducted in 2007/2008.
