October 3 – What Do You Do When You Can See It All?
Paul Morin, Polar Geospatial Center University of Minnesota
Five orbiting telescopes now collect more than 1 billion square kilometers of images of Earth. Polar scientists are beginning to cope with and use this observational gold mine. It is now possible to count every penguin, map every crevasse and create a geologic map without ever visiting an outcrop. Morin will describe the Polar Geospatial Center's experience in mapping and monitoring 60 degrees of the Earth's latitude with fewer than two dozen staff.
