Mr. Jurjen van der Sluijs

Unmanned Aircraft Systems Coordinator
NWT Centre for Geomatics
Participates in 1 Session

Mr. van der Sluijs is an Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Coordinator with the NWT Centre for Geomatics (Government of NWT). He has over 10 years of experience in the field of remote sensing where he develops geomatics applications for monitoring permafrost, infrastructure, natural resource and cultural heritage sites. Jurjen leads the GNWT’s multi-departmental UAS/Drone Program wherein he manages the provision of geomatics field data acquisition and processing services and participates in original remote sensing research projects using various data sources (drone photogrammetry, LiDAR, multi-temporal satellite imagery). Jurjen has conducted missions using various drone platforms across a wide range of northern environments for numerous collaborators, including research organizations and Indigenous stakeholders.

The landscapes in the Northwest Territories (NWT, Canada) are amongst the most rapidly changing in the world due to climate-induced permafrost thaw. This presentation provides an overview of recent remote sensing and mapping investigations of permafrost thaw landslides across different spatial and temporal scales in the NWT. A common thread of ever-expanding geospatial capabilities (remote sensing, machine learning) is juxtaposed against rapidly intensifying permafrost thaw with many growi...
