Webinar series: An anchor point to a drifting world!

This webinar mini series has been initiated by the SIOS remote sensing service as a response to the new challenges posed by COVID-19 and will take place approximately every month.

Several speakers will present recent observations and opportunities in relation to remote sensing platforms, leaving room for discussion and creating a social experience within the research community.

The aim of this webinar series is to keep you updated, provide a social experience, help to engage the Svalbard research community, and offer you an anchor point to a drifting world!

If you would like to contribute as a speaker or recommend a speaker to the webinar or have further questions, please contact our remote sensing officer: remotesensing@sios-svalbard.org
