Welcome to the 10th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium and 29th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing. This conference deals specifically with remote sensing applications in the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic, as well as sessions on other topics that do not concern polar work. It will provide an international forum for the discussion of work currently being carried out in the circumpolar regions and elsewhere. The conference topics are below, and additional topics and/or other Special Sessions can be considered:

  • Environmental monitoring
  • Wildlife management and habitat protection
  • Arctic vegetation
  • Land and water management
  • Pollution control
  • Snow and ice, glaciers
  • Climatology
  • Oceanography
  • Geology
  • Mineral and oil and gas exploration
  • Forestry
  • Agriculture
  • Wetlands
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Applications
  • Instrumentation
  • LiDAR
  • Hyperspectral remote sensing
  • Ground, Airborne and Satellite imaging
  • Archaeology
  • Climate change
  • Data Integration and Data Mining, Modeling
  • 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 and students involved in renewable and non-renewable resource management in Canada and other parts of the world. The symposium will provide a forum for the exchange of current applied international research, the presentation of new technology, and the advancement of international co-operation in the circumpolar and other regions of the world. It will also serve as an excellent way to report on International Polar Year activities that are being conducted in 2007/2008.
