    Publication of Coastal Current Intrusions from Satellite Altimetry

    A new study entitled “Coastal current intrusions from satellite altimetry” has just been published in the journal Remote Sensing. This study comes from an international collaboration between the European Space Agency (ESA), MIO (Fr), CNR (It) and Serco (It) with the goal of monitoring coastal intrusions into the Gulf of Lion by analyzing multi-mission Satellite Altimetry data with Machine Learning methods

    ISSPI: 1st International Satellite Snow Product Intercomparison Workshop

    Seasonal snow is a main element of the global water cycle and climate system. Due to the strong influence on the radiation and energy balance, changes in snow extent tend to amplify climate fluctuations. Terrestrial snow covers up to 50 million km2 of the Northern Hemisphere in winter, and is characterized by high spatial and temporal variability. Therefore satellite observations provide the only means for timely and complete observations of the global snow cover. The recently published 2013 IPCC Working Group 1 report identified seasonal snow as significantly decreasing during recent decades. The importance of producing better global scale snow cover data sets has been addressed in the WCRP-CliC Workshop on "WCRP Grand Challenges of the Cryosphere in a Changing Climate", held in Tromsö, 16-18 Oct. 2013. Also in the WMO Global Cryosphere Watch Workshop in January 2013 the need of intercomparing snow products from various sensors and methods was identified. This is the first of two international workshops with the aim to bring together scientists and institutions working in seasonal snow pack monitoring in order to assess the quality of current satellite-based snow products derived from EO data and work out guidelines for improvement. Scientists are encouraged to submit abstracts for presentations and posters for the workshops.

    Aeolus set for Instrument Telescope Refocussing exercise

    Aeolus’s telescope requires periodic collimation and refocussing. To this end, the Instrument Telescope Refocussing activity aims to improve the radiometric performance of the Atmospheric Laser Doppler Instrument (ALADIN)’s telescope by optimizing the throughput at the field stop, the smallest aperture where the return light has to pass. This is done through a change of the temperature settings on the telescope.
