Workshop on Satellite data for storm surge modelling and forecasting

10 - 11 September 2012

Storm surges are one of the most deadly natural hazards, affecting both rich and poor countries. Satellite Earth Observation (EO) data has an important role to play in storm surge modelling and forecasting, yet it is not currently being used to its full potential. The ESA eSurge project aims to increase the uptake of EO data, both by providing easy access to relevant data and by demonstrating its usefulness.

As part of the project, a workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark, is being organised to discuss the current state of modelling and forecasting, and how this might be improved.
