Amery Iceberg

01 October 2019

A huge iceberg has broken off the Amery Ice Shelf in Antarctica. Dubbed D28, the iceberg is around 1600 sq km – about the size of Greater London. Approximately 30 km wide and 60 km long, it is estimated to weigh over 300 billion tonnes.

Proba-V – Universal Access to Information

27 September 2019

Proba-V data is free and openly accessible through various portals. The Terrascope platform, built on the technology and expertise gained from the Mission Exploitation Platform (MEP), enables users to access, view, and analyze the Proba-V data in multiple ways and facilitates a more efficient path from data to information and new knowledge on our planet's dynamics.

Copernicus Sentinel-5 Precursor Validation Team Workshop

11 - 14 November 2019

The purpose of this workshop is to gather feedback from the S5PVT about the uncertainty characterisation of all Sentinel-5P products that have been released to the public by the time of the S5PVT Workshop.

 

The objectives of the S5PVT workshop are to:

  • provide validation teams an up-to-date overview of the Sentinel-5P mission
  • present S5PVT calibration/validation results about the Sentinel-5P core products
  • assess the usefulness of Sentinel-5P core products for dedicated applications
  • discuss possible improved uncertainty characterization of the Sentinel-5P core products
  • foster cooperation and synergies among Cal/Val teams.

AGU Fall Meeting 2019 - Session 'The global water cycle'

9 - 13 December 2019

The AGU Fall Meeting 2019 Conference is scheduled to take place from 09 to 13 December 2019, in San Francisco, California, USA.

 

Particularly interesting for the SMOS User community, the session "The global water cycle: Coupling and Exchanges between the ocean, land, and atmosphere" highlights water cycle research that describes linkages between the ocean, atmosphere, and land hydrology.

 

Contributions are invited on all aspects of water cycle research including analyses undertaken using in situ and spaceborne observations from current (e.g., SMAP, SMOS, GRACE-FO, GPM, GCOM-W), past (e.g., Aquarius, TRMM, GRACE), and future (e.g., SWOT, CIMR) satellite missions, estimates based on numerical models, data assimilation systems, as well as climate model projections and theoretical contributions.

 

We particularly welcome studies that consider multiple realms (the ocean, atmosphere, land surface and subsurface), and provide compelling evidence for linkages between these, describing coherent water cycle variability and change.

 

We welcome global and regional assessments across these interfaces, and contributions that demonstrate what needs to be observed to ensure that long-term changes in the water cycle are accurately quantified.

MicroRad 2020

16 - 20 November 2020

The 16th Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Environment (MicroRad 2020) will be held from 16 to 20 November at the Santa Apollonia Auditorium in Florence, Italy. The event is organised by the Centro di Telerilevamento a Microonde (CETEM) and the Istituto di Fisica Applicata (IFAC-CNR).

 

Participation in MicroRad2020 meeting is open to all individuals interested in or working in the fields of passive microwave remote sensing; the microwave radiometry community is invited to present new research results and instrument designs in the field of remote sensing of land, ocean, cryosphere and atmosphere.

 

Thanks to an ESA sponsorship, travel support can be provided to a selection of 10 students, to encourage the participation of young scientists to the event. In order to be eligible for receiving the support, students must submit an abstract to the conference as first author. Further details on the MicroRad2020 website.

 

Meeting postponed and will now take place on 16 to 20 November: Read the communication by the organisers
