Image of the Week
This image of vast plains and agricultural fields in central Spain was one of the first images acquired by Spain's recently launched Deimos-1 satellite. Deimos-1 was launched together with Britain's UK-DMC2 satellite from Kazakhstan on 29 July 2009. As the newest members of the Disaster Monitoring Constellation, both satellites will improve the constellation thanks to their ability to acquire larger areas (650 km) and provide sharper images (22 m) with increased depths of information.

The OceanObs '09 symposium will celebrate a decade of progress and
make a major contribution to chart the way forward for the coming
decade. The aim is to strengthen and enhance the international

and information systems supporting the needs of society about ocean
weather, climate, ecosystems, carbon and chemistry.
