Arctic Products Validation & Evolution Workshop III: Linking Arctic User Information Requirements and Earth Observation Product Evolution

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Location: Explorer Hotel – Yellowknife, NWT
Date: 15-16 May 2018

LOOKNorth, the Canadian Space Agency and the European Space Agency invites you to participate in the third Arctic Product Validation and Evolution (APVE) workshop. This workshop is co-organized with the NWT Center for Geomatics and Polar Knowledge Canada. The APVE workshop series aims to ensure that the information collected by national and international space agencies and provided to Arctic users is needed, accurate and in a usable form.

This third APVE workshop (Yellowknife, 2018) will focus on understanding the information needs of community-level users. We will hear from groups working to address issues that affect Arctic environments and the people who live there. The emphasis will be on fundamental issues such as wildlife populations and behavior, habitat changes, human access and food security. Recognizing that each of these topics could fill its own workshop, APVE III will focus on Arctic wildlife (terrestrial and marine), considering the impacts of both climate change and human activity.

The workshop will include presentations on current Arctic EO-related research and applications, providing context for focused workshop discussion of user needs and opportunities for potential new uses of EO data, support programs to build EO-related capacity in the Arctic and planning for future satellite missions.
