New service to go live: Envisat-ERS (A)SAR On-the-Fly Data Processing and Data Download service

27 May 2016

ESA will shortly introduce an important change for users in the way to obtain Envisat and ERS (A)SAR data. Evolving from the traditional on-demand PAC production to the new On-The-Fly data processing will imply significant improvement for users being able to trigger (A)SAR processing and download directly from the ESA archive via the new (A)SAR data On-The-Fly (OTF) service.

3rd Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application Workshop

21 - 22 September 2016

The 3rd Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application workshop will be held in New York City, USA, from 21 to 22 September 2016 (the exact location has yet to be decided).

The objective of this workshop series is to discuss and reconcile methodological advances in the validation and application of global satellite soil moisture data.

The workshop is unique in that it brings together satellite soil moisture users and developers to focus on both the derivation and exploration of soil moisture data from both passive and active microwave satellite missions (SMAP, SMOS, ASCAT, AMSR-2, Sentinel-1, and other legacy missions).

 

Please note that this workshop will follow a SMAP Cal/Val Workshop on 19 and 20 September 2016 that will be held in Manhattan and is open to all that are interested in SMAP.

International workshop on measuring high-wind speeds over the ocean

15 - 17 November 2016

A three day workshop on the science and applications of remotely-sensed ocean surface winds, with a focus on high or extreme wind speeds. The workshop will be held at the Met Office headquarters in the cathedral city of Exeter, United Kingdom, from 15 to 17 November 2016.

Topics will include:

  • Status of monitoring ocean-surface winds from space: current and future instruments
  • Methods and models for retrieving high winds from satellite observing systems
  • Ocean surface wind products, synergies, and validation of high wind speeds
  • Applications for ocean-atmosphere interactions
  • Applications for numerical weather prediction (NWP)
  • Applications for tropical cyclone and extra-tropical storms
  • Climate applications
