2019 marked the 20th meeting of the GHRSST International Science Team (G-XX) and so it offered the opportunity to have a forward looking meeting, which took place in ESA ESRIN, Frascati, focussing on innovation and challenges to develop the future perspective for GHRSST (Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature) - most notably with respect to a mix of microwave and thermal infrared satellite capability.
The purpose of the meeting was to:
- Bring together scientific and operational Sea Surface Temperature (SST) users and producers to review progress and achievements of SST science and applications within the GHRSST framework
- Look forward towards future innovation and challenges for GHRSST and the SST community over the next 20 years
- Open the meeting to everybody but is especially relevant to SST experts and the international community actively involved in SST science and applications
- Use plenary discussions and keynote talks to tackle specific issues as well as poster sessions and panel discussions to promote discussion
G-XX was followed immediately by the 8th CEOS SST-VC meeting. The meeting took place at the very end of the GHRSST International Science Team meeting so that SST-VC members could collate all of the scientific and technical progress from the week and develop a coherent strategy for the year ahead, linking GHRSST and CEOS to advance the needs of SST users around the world.
