Fourth Swarm Science Meeting & geodetic missions workshop

20 - 24 March 2017

Jointly with partners in Canada, the European Space Agency is organizing a cornerstone event in the area of exploitation of data from Swarm and geodetic satellite missions, including GOCE, GRACE and future missions. The Fourth Swarm Science Meeting and the accompanying Geodetic Missions Workshop will be held at the Park Lodge Hotel in Banff, Alberta, Canada alongside the CryoSat North-American Science Meeting from 20 to 24 March 2017.

In these co-located meetings the European Space Agency aims to address science, applications and services in the context of its Earth Explorer series of missions, ranging in focus from the Earth's outer core to the magnetosphere. Specifically, as the Swarm mission is about to complete three years of extremely successful science operations, the meeting will bring together the wider international scientific community to explore and develop scientific and application synergies and to propel the mission into its next phase.

North American CryoSat science meeting and geodetic missions workshop

20 - 24 March 2017

The first North American CryoSat Science Meeting will take place in Banff (Alberta, Canada) from 20 to 24 March 2017.

The meeting will provide a unique and timely forum for scientists and end-users of CryoSat data to share the state-of-the-art in research and applications, review mission achievements and prepare for the continued use of the CryoSat mission in the future. Organised approximately seven years after launch of CryoSat, the meeting will highlight areas where the mission has made significant contribution including cryosphere, oceanography, geodesy, hydrology, topography, meteorology and climate change. Presentations on the use of CryoSat data for operational applications and demonstrations of novel scientific applications are also encouraged. The meeting will be instrumental to outline the international collaboration in the exploitation of data, to propose new scientific requirements, to identify new scientific challenges in view of the extension beyond 2019 and, in general, for its possible successor.

The meeting is held in parallel with the Fourth Swarm science meeting. There will be a one-day joint session to address common thematic applications related to gravimetric applications.

Workshop on Vicarious Adjustment

21 - 23 February 2017

The European Space Agency is organising the "Workshop on Vicarious Adjustment". The event will be hosted at ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy from 21 to 23 February 2017. The objective of this workshop is to gather experts in the different fields involved in vicarious adjustment and open a wide range debate on the best way to go for future long term vicarious infrastructure.

The European Space Agency (ESA) has launched a project called Fiducial Reference Measurements for Satellite Ocean Colour (FRM4SOC). Led by Tartu Observatory Estonia, FRM4SOC aims to establish and maintain SI traceability of Fiducial Reference Measurements (FRM) for satellite OCR. To ensure the best possible product delivery to users, ESA is organising this international workshop to evaluate the options for future European satellite OCR vicarious adjustment infrastructure for the Sentinel-3 OLCI and Sentinel-2 MSI series.

Ocean salinity and water cycle variability session at AGU Fall Meeting 2016

12 - 16 December 2016

The "Ocean salinity, water cycle variability and science results from satellite measurements" session will take place at the AGU Fall Meeting 2016 in San Francisco, USA, from 12 to 16 December 2016. With approximately 24,000 attendees in 2015, AGU's Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world.

This session highlights research investigating ocean salinity, an Essential Climate Variable (ECV), as a key parameter that links various elements of the water cycle to ocean circulation dynamics and climate. Contributions are invited on all aspects of ocean salinity investigations, including analyses undertaken from in situ and satellite observations, numerical models, and data assimilation. We particularly welcome contributions that have utilised sea surface salinity (SSS) measurements from the recent pathfinder satellite missions (SMOS, Aquarius/SAC-D, and SMAP).
