Earth Observation Events
14 April 2010 - 15 April 2010
The European Space Agency has recently conducted a series of
parallel studies to analyse different mission concepts to support
Earth Observation (EO) applications based on high spatial
resolution (HR) imaging from geostationary satellites. In order to
consolidate the mission requirements, the European Space Agency
will convene a HR GEO user consultation workshop at its
ESRIN establishment in Frascati, Rome on the 14 and 15 April 2010.
28 June 2010 - 2 July 2010
The 2010 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium follows the previous successful ENVISAT Symposia in Montreux (2007), Salzburg (2004), Gothenburg (2000), Florence (1997), Hamburg (1993) and Cannes (1992). The Symposium will provide an opportunity to present results from missions in exploitation (ERS-2, ENVISAT, GOCE, SMOS, CRYOSAT, Third Party Missions) and to introduce future ESA missions (GMES Sentinels, Earth Explorers, meteorological missions) and national EO missions.
