MSG-3 delivers first image

On 07 August, the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) instrument on MSG-3 captured its first image of the Earth. This demonstrates that Europe's latest geostationary weather satellite, launched on 5 July, is performing well and is on its way to taking over operational service after six months of commissioning.

Refining Land Surface Product Consistency and Quality from Sensor Constellations

09 August 2012

There is no doubt that Earth Observation (EO) data has great potential to contribute to land surface monitoring, providing consistent global coverage with historical archives to document changes. The increasing number of EO missions is opening new opportunities to users to access a larger number of data products derived from different sensors providing estimates of the same geo-physical or climate variables.

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.

Radar Remote Sensing applications for the study and observation of archaeological sites

17 - 18 September 2012

In September 2012 the University of Ghent, the University of Rome and the University of Rennes1 with the support of ESA are organizing a training Course on Remote Sensing applications for archaeology addressed to archaeologists and people working in cultural heritage applications from Universities, Scientific Communities, Institutions and Organizations interested in this topic.

The course will provide an introduction to radar Remote Sensing techniques as well as some examples of end user applications of polarimetry within the archaeological field.

The course will take place at the University of Ghent (Belgium) on 17-18 September 2012.
