In March/April, SIOS invited proposals for acquiring aerial imagery and hyperspectral data using SIOS's airborne remote sensing platforms. 9 projects were funded and two flights were already conducted in June this year.
Due to travel restrictions in relation with the Covid-19 pandemic, many scientists from SIOS member institutions could not conduct fieldwork in Svalbard during spring and summer 2020. In these special times, SIOS-KC offered to assist where possible in order to avoid gaps in long-term data series.
