Submit your abstracts for EarthCARE Pre-Launch Science and Validation Workshop

11 May 2023

Invitations are now open for the EarthCARE Pre-Launch Science and Validation Workshop, which will take place at ESRIN in Frascati, Italy, from 13 to 17 November.

The ESA-JAXA Pre-Launch EarthCARE Science and Validation Workshop

The Earth Cloud, Aerosol and Radiation Explorer (EarthCARE) is an upcoming mission jointly developed by ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to improve our understanding of the cloud-aerosol-radiation interactions and Earth radiative budget, so that they can be modelled with better reliability in climate and numerical weather prediction models. To achieve this objective, EarthCARE will measure the 3D structure of clouds, precipitation and aerosols, together with collocated observations of solar (shortwave) and terrestrial (thermal) radiation.

The workshop will gather the scientific community together to discuss the science of EarthCARE and its anticipated applications, and will foster collaboration between validation teams; enabling discussion of validation methods and opportunities.

If you would like to present at the workshop, please submit your abstract by 30 June.
