GHRSST Science team meeting 2019

17 January 2019

This year marks the 20th meeting of the GHRSST International Science Team (G-XX), which will be held at ESA-Esrin, Frascati, Italy, from 3 to 7 June 2019.

This is a great opportunity to have a forward looking meeting focusing on innovation and challenges to develop the future perspective for GHRSST - most notably with respect to a mix of microwave and thermal infrared satellite capability.

Abstract submission is open; papers can be submitted until the deadline of 29 March 2019.

G-XX will be followed immediately by the 8th CEOS SST-VC meeting. The meeting takes place at the very end of the GHRSST International Science Team meeting so that SST-VC members can collate all of the scientific and technical progress from the week and develop a coherent strategy for the year ahead, linking GHRSST and CEOS to advance the needs of SST users around the world.
