EO Level1 Lessons Learned Workshop

As a result of a recommendation at the Atmospheric Composition Validation and Evolution workshop held on 13-15 March 2013, representatives from the atmospheric composition and optical Level 1 communities participated in a meeting in June 2013 to discuss how to integrate the latest findings on Level 1 activities into the upcoming reprocessing campaigns of ERS1/ERS-2/Envisat and to support scientific research, the EO applications and exploitation community, ESA programmes, to prepare for the Sentinels operations phase and draw together lessons learned for future missions. The presentations and the meeting report are available below.
