The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) is organized annually by ISC Member, the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) as a large collection of international meetings and workshops to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between the various scientific organizations involved in Arctic research. It was initiated by the IASC in 1999 and has evolved into the most important annual gathering of the Arctic research organization.

🌟 29 March 2022 – Science Day 2022 “Arctic Remote Sensing and Remote Sensing Techniques”

Remote sensing in the Arctic is crucial for detecting and quantifying climate change and related effects, operational services, and sustainable resource exploitation. It gives information about remote areas that are not otherwise easily reached. The Science Day will include presentations and discussions about remote sensing applications and methods, as well as about opportunities remote sensing offers in support of both science and industry in the Arctic.

Keynote speakers

  • Gunnar Spreen  – Satellite remote sensing of Arctic sea ice: Overview and recent developments
  • Katalin Blix  – Satellite remote sensing over ocean surfaces in the Arctic
  • Virve Ravolainen  – Remote sensing of tundra vegetation: an ecologists perspective
  • Walt Meier  – Remote sensing observations of sea ice in a transformed Arctic climate
