ESA will support as many high-quality and innovative projects as possible within the quota limit available, therefore only a limited amount of products can be made available to each project.Availability and restrictions to the use of the above data is described in the ESA TPM T&C and in the Terms of applicability document linked below.
Please note that proposals already submitted/confirmed for the other calls released in 2007 and 2014 remain valid and do not need to be resubmitted.Funding of the activities solicited through this AO shall be covered by national/institutional resources. As a CAL/VAL PI or co-PI, access to Aeolus product quality information will become available to you first-hand and before the official product release.

Within the framework of its Copernicus missions, ESA is pleased to announce the Sentinel-5 Precursor Calibration and Validation Team Call (S5PVT) that aims to engage leading expertise for the Calibration and Validation of the Sentinel-5 Precursor (S5P) in the mission validation team, providing independent experimental data, analysis and recommendations to critically assess the end-to-end performance of the instrument and its products. The main payload of S5P is TROPOMI (TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument), a push broom imaging spectrometer realized by ESA in collaboration with the Netherlands Space Office (NSO). S5P is expected to provide information on atmospheric variables in support of European policies and Copernicus services. The S5p satellite was launched on 13 October 2017 and will provide over 7 years data to the user community.
ESA is offering all scientists with the possibility to perform bulk processing and/or validation of their own algorithms exploiting the large ESA earth-observation archive together with ESA available GRID computing and
dynamic storage resources.
