Aeolus Cal/Val Science Workshop

2 - 6 November 2020

The Aeolus Cal/Val and Science workshop has been rescheduled to take place on the 2-6 November 2020, at EUMETSAT, Darmstadt, (Germany).

 

The yearly Aeolus Cal/Val and Science workshops are the main forum for reporting on mission status and product evolution, for informing and coordinating mission Cal/Val activities, as well as reporting on results on NWP impact assessments and further scientific exploitation of the Aeolus data.

 

At the 2019 Aeolus CAL/VAL and Science workshop, first in-orbit results from the Aeolus CAL/VAL and science teams were presented. At the 2020 workshop, further and more consolidated results from these teams will be presented, as well as work done by new scientific teams who have joined the Aeolus CAL/VAL and science efforts in 2019.

Earth Explorers for Climate - The contribution from SMOS

9 - 11 March 2021

The European Space Agency is organising the symposium "Earth Explorers for Climate - The contribution from SMOS"has been rescheduled to take place on 9 to 11 March 2021 at the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the SMOS mission.

 

The objective of this symposium is to take stock of the contributions of SMOS to science and research during the last 10 years and to have an outlook and set the priorities for the next 10 years with a particular focus on climate research.

 

Current submissions will be kept and the submission tool will reopen closer to the meeting so it is possible to make changes to submissions, or add a new submission with your latest research.

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

EO for agriculture under pressure

Possible Postponement

ESA and EC DG-RTD are jointly organising the EO for Agriculture under Pressure Workshop from 25 to 29 May 2020 in ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy.

The workshop aims at discussing the latest scientific results in terms of applying Earth Observation to agricultural monitoring and supporting a climate-resilient, climate-neutral and environment-friendly agriculture.

A further goal is to identify key scientific challenges to be addressed in order to advance towards such a sustainable agriculture providing food security for all.


This workshop could be postponed and is currently under review, please see guidance on the event website.

EO for Polar Science Workshop

28 - 30 October 2020

The EO for Polar Science Workshop has been rescheduled to take place on the 28-30 October 2020, at The Black Diamond in Copenhagen, Denmark

 

Polar regions have experienced the most rapid rates of warming in recent years and its expected impacts will exceed those forecasted for many other regions in the planet resulting in local, regional and globally significant consequences affecting natural ecosystems and human activities. Improving our observation capacity and enhancing the basic understanding of the different drivers and processes governing those changes and translate that knowledge into actionable solutions for society is a major challenge for the future. Earth Observation from space and Earth system science will represent an essential element in this process.

 

This workshop aims at assessing the latest advancement in the use of EO technology for Polar science, exploring the main challenges and opportunities for the coming decade and consulting with the community to contribute to define a common scientific agenda for the future.

 

The meeting is open to EO scientists, polar researchers and students, modellers, Earth system and climate scientists, industry, operational agencies, policy makers, representatives of local communities and other stakeholders interested in sharing their knowledge and experience and contributing to drive the European polar scientific agenda.

 

Deadline for contribution submission extended to 1 June 2020.
