CERC - Canada Research Chair in Remote Sensing of Canada’s New Arctic Frontier

team

The Chair research group is comprised of three teams of research associates and technicians involved respectively in (1) the process studies conducted in the laboratory and at sea; (2) the methodological development of remote sensing and data management tools; and (3) the optimization and development of new observing technologies. This permanent staff supervises Postdoctoral, Doctoral, and Master fellows funded by the CERC program.
