Due to the ongoing pandemic we are unable to run our popular get-together at London’s famous Geological Society’s offices, as we planned.
However, we will recreate the usual mix of fascinating presentations, networking and social get togethers as best we can: just virtually.
GRSG Chairman, Charlotte Bishop commented ; “This year we bring together members from all over the world, just like always do, to explore a wide range of applied remote sensing applications, from the ground to space and from the earth to planetary science. We will have a specific focus on the value that we can provide to all industries, everywhere.”

Please note that since this is an online event, the volunteers that run the GRSG are making tickets available for free but this will have a severe impact on the Group’s finances, as the Conference is our one big fund-raising event of the year.
So, we have provided the option for members and guests to purchase Donation Tickets which, as the name suggests, will allow you to make a donation to the GRSG for attending the Conference.
Of course, there is no pressure for anyone to do this but if you are able to donate to the Group, we will be extremely grateful.
We look forward to seeing everyone online in December!
The GRSG Committee
