Abstract : The Arctic Institute of North America long has been interested in encouraging full and specific attention to applications of remote sensing to polar-research problems. The major purpose of the symposium was to acquaint scientists and technicians concerned with remote sensing with some of the special problems of the polar areas and, in turn, to acquaint polar scientists with the potential of the use of remote sensing. The Symposium therefore was designed to foster an exchange of ideas between the users and potential users of remote sensing, and instrumentation and interpretation specialists.
