SIOS is currently working on its third “State of Environmental Science in Svalbard (SESS) report”.
The SESS report summarises the state of current knowledge of key Earth System Science parameters and analyses how these parameters influence one another. It combines the long-term monitoring data that form the core of the observing system with new, innovative monitoring and research.
The SESS report 2020 will highlight the state of environmental science in Svalbard and contribute to the development of the Earth Observing System in and around Svalbard.
Among the authors, Roberto Salzano is the Lead Author of the “terrestrial Photography ApplicationS on Snow covEr in Svalbard” chapter. His contribution will focus on creating a framework about the estimation of the fractional snow cover using terrestrial photography
