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.

European Space Week 2019

3 - 5 December 2019

The European Space Week will be held at the Helsinki Congress Paasitorni in Helsinki, Finland, from 3 to 5 December, 2019. This year's European Space Week focuses on the following central themes:

  • How space solutions can help to strengthen the EU's position as a global leader in climate action
  • New space economy for sustainable growth
  • Sustainable space economy: Saving space for future generations
  • Space solutions for a sustainable Arctic

Bringing together business, policy-makers, international experts and the space application user community, the event will present first-hand insights into the European Union's Space Programmes Copernicus and Galileo and updates on the New Space Economy, as well as discussing how space solutions can contribute to a sustainable Europe and a sustainable future.

 

With a mix of keynotes, panel discussions, networking opportunities, business matchmaking sessions and exhibitions, the EU Space Week provides the perfect setup for a productive exchange of game-changing ideas, future trends and current challenges.

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
