When: 3-4 September 2018

Where: Radisson Blu, Gardermoen.

Registration here!

Centre for Integrated Remote Sensing and Forecasting for Arctic Operations (CIRFA) is pleased to invite to a thematic workshop with the focus on “Sea Ice Remote Sensing”.

The objective is twofold:

  • Status update on the directions of the research going on in CIRFA with regards to sea ice classification, sea ice modelling, drift estimation, and iceberg detection.
  • Feedback from industry and stakeholders; their needs and requirements within this topic.

Practical information:

  • Travel and accommodation costs are covered by the participants.
  • There is no workshop fee for participants
  • Meals included in the programme are provided free of cost
