5th International Workshop on Remote Sensing of Vegetation Flourescence

22 - 24 April 2014

The 5th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Vegetation Fluorescence will be held in Paris, France from 22 to 24 April 2014, and will address the current status of research and understanding of vegetation fluorescence, within the framework of the upcoming selection by ESA of the Earth Explorer 8 mission to go forward in the next mission phase.

This workshop will be an opportunity among various scientific communities to discuss and communicate about new advances in the FLEX mission preparatory activities, as well as generic topics related to vegetation fluorescence and its applications.

Among the focus topics to be addressed: instrument development; methods for fluorescence retrieval; techniques for signal analysis; ground and airborne measurement campaigns; fluorescence models at leaf, canopy and TOA levels; model inversions; relationships between fluorescence, physiology, canopy structure and CO2 assimilation; and fluorescence applications in environment monitoring.

European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2014

27 April - 02 May 2014

The EGU General Assembly 2014 will be held at the ACV centre in Vienna, Austria, from 27 April to 02 May 2014. The event will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences. Especially for young scientists, it is the aim of the EGU to provide a forum where they can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geosciences. See in particular the session dedicated to SMOS.

10th International Workshop on Greenhouse Gas Measurements from Space

05 - 07 May 2014

The 10th International Workshop on Greenhouse Gas Measurements from space (IWGGMS-10) will take place at ESA-ESTEC in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, from 05 to 07 May 2014.

The goal of this workshop is to assess the latest science and technologies of greenhouse gas (GHG) measurements from space. The workshop will address new scientific findings obtained from current and past satellite missions (ENVISAT SCIAMACHY, Aqua AIRS, MeteoSat IASI, GOSAT TANSO-FTS, and Aura TES), as well as the concepts of future satellite missions that are near launch or in preparation (OCO-2, Sentinel-5 precursor, TanSat, OCO-3, MERLIN, GOSAT-2, MicroCarb, Sentinel-5, CarbonSat, ASCENDS, etc.).

 

Registration deadline: 18 April 2014

Earth Observation Summer School - Earth System Monitoring and Modelling

04 - 14 August 2014

The European Space Agency (ESA) organises a series of summer schools on Monitoring of the Earth System to promote the exploitation of Earth Observation (EO) data across disciplines, with a specific focus on their assimilation into Earth System models.

The next two-week course will be held at ESA/ESRIN (Frascati, Italy) from 04 to 14 August 2014. It aims to provide students with an integrated end-to-end perspective going from measurement techniques to end-user applications.
