Action Group on Remote Sensing
SCAR Action Group

The SCAR Action Group on Remote Sensing has been established with the full name "Development of a satellite-based, Antarctic-wide, remote sensing approach to monitor bird and animal populations", initially for three years, with the aim to address the topic of "Animal monitoring via remote sensing". A number of publications on that topic, several published in 2012, indicate that the importance of satellite-based remote sensing for monitoring purposes is currently growing. In these various publications, different methodological approaches have been proved and discussed.
