ESA's upcoming event on Earth Observation Φ-week
21 February 2018
The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising a Φ-week event from 22 to 26 October 2018, focusing on EO Open Science and FutureEO to review the latest developments in Open Science trends and kick-start innovative activities of the recently created Φ-department This department and its associated Φ-lab is looking at FutureEO and aims to identify, support and scale bold EO ideas. This event will be hosted in ESA-ESRIN.
The Φ-week will include a variety of events (e.g. inspiring talks, workshops, roundtables, startup pitch, hackathons) to connect multi-disciplinary communities - from EO researchers, data scientists, non-space corporates, tech leaders, entrepreneurs, up to startup and innovators. The main purpose is to explore together how EO Open Science and innovation can benefit from the latest digital technologies and help shapeFutureEO missions and services.
Abstract submission deadline: 01 April 2018.

Lake Erie and Lake Saint Claire
Lake Erie is the southernmost Great Lake, located on both Canadian and USA territory, and measures about 26,000 km2. It was formed during the last glacial retreat about 4,000 years ago and has its main outlet through the Niagara Falls into Lake Ontario.
Due to its relatively small water volume, it experiences the Great Lakes' largest annual temperature amplitude. During summer, water temperatures reach 21° – 24°C, while during winter it has the largest ice coverage of all Great Lakes.
This 100 m Proba-V image of 05 January 2018 shows Lake Erie's western part, largely covered by ice sheets and the snow-covered surrounding land. Lake Erie is connected with and replenished by Lake Saint Claire, which is visible in the upper part of the image.
Detroit city, well-known for its large car manufacturing and musical legacy, is located at the southwestern shore of Lake Saint Claire.
