Submission deadline for extended abstract and full paper are both extended to May 20, 2017

Earth’s climate is changing, and multiple lines of evidence suggest significant warming in the cryosphere, the oceans and the atmosphere. The global surface temperature is increasing, the global sea level is rising, the ice is melting, and changes in the pattern of precipitation are bringing intense rainfall and floods to some areas and devastating droughts to others. Satellite remote sensing and associated airborne and in situ measurements have been crucial for advancing our understanding of the dynamics and impacts on global climate system. This international workshop aims to present the state-of-the-art advances in remote sensing research with cryospheric and hydrological applications.

CHGCS 2017 provides an opportunity for all professionals involved in cryosphere and hydrosphere to share research ideas and results, foster and enhance cooperation, draw inspirations and maximize potentials. It will take place from Sep 20-21, 2017 in Wuhan, Hubei, China, organized by ISPRS WG III/9 Cryosphere and Hydrosphere. The event will be held in conjunction with the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2017 (website: from Sep18-22, 2017.
