Past Distinguished Lecturers

The Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) is a service of the GRSS and its members to support our chapter activities. Our goal is to provide chapters with access to leading professionals in geoscience and remote sensing and discuss novel topics in current research. This is an opportunity for the GRSS membership to hear interesting talks about work being done in our fields of interest and to meet some of the prominent members of our Society.
