Distinguished Lecturer Program

The Distinguished Lecturer program is a service of the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society to support our chapter activities. The Program provides GRSS Chapters with talks by experts on topics of interest and importance to the Geoscience and Remote Sensing community. The program is structured so that Chapters will incur little or no cost in making use of this service. The GRSS will provide funding for up to two speakers per chapter per year.
