Events and Proceedings
The 14th edition of the EuroGEO workshop (scheduled from 8-10 June 2020 in Paris) has been postponed due to the current global health situation. However, to make sure the preparations for the GEO Plenary in November can continue, the organisers will host a virtual meeting/webinar on 8 June instead.
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.
All of the ESA EO-SSO services will be unavailable on 29 May, from 10:00 to 11:00 CEST.
Strateole-2 is a French-US project supported by ESA that uses CNES superpressure balloons drifting around the globe to study the climate processes in the Tropical Tropopause Layer (TTL) and the lower stratosphere, helping Aeolus validation activities along the way.
Due to a scheduled maintenance, access to the Aeolus and GOCE dissemination systems will be unavailable on 22 May,
The release of Aeolus data to the public was made possible by the product optimisation work performed by the Aeolus DISC.
In the last decade, climate change has taken centre stage in both the public and scientific arenas, as increasingly extreme weather and human impact on the environment have become more apparent.
The reprocessed CryoSat Ice Baseline D data for 2016 has now been published on the Science Server.
A software maintenance activity affecting the On-The-Fly (OTF) ESA data dissemination service infrastructure has been planned on 18 May.
