The Remote Sensing Action Group has limited funds available to support one (or some) early-career researchers working on the impact of drones on wildlife in Antarctica and presenting the results at the SCAR Biology Symposium 2017 in Leuven, Belgium. In additional to the symposium, we are organizing a workshop on Drones and Antarctic Biology on Sunday, July 9 in the afternoon.
Please send following information by 15 April: Name and affiliation, Status (graduate student or PhD student), Title of the presentation, motivation for participating.
The Remote Sensing AG were active with convened sessions and a group meeting at the 2016 SCAR Open Science Conference:
22nd and 23rd August: OSC Session 21: Remote sensing of the Antarctic environment: Multidisciplinary Advances:
Conveners : Hong Tat Ewe, Shridhar Jawak, Rob Massom, Oscar Schofield & Hans-Ulrich Peter
20 talks and 16 poster presentations were submitted. One young scientist received financial support from the Remote Sensing AG.
20th August : A joint meeting of the Remote Sensing AG and the new SOOS working Group Censusing Animal Populations from Space (CAPS) was held. Half of the day was devoted to SCAR Action Group business, and half to discussing the CAPS pack-ice seal census project.
