14 - 22 July 2018
The 42nd Scientific Assembly of the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) will be held in Pasadena, California, USA, from 14 to 22 July 2018.
See the list of scientific events (sessions) under the COSPAR Scientific Commission (Space Studies of the Earth's Surface, Meteorology and Climate).
Event A2.1 'Scientific Exploitation of Oceanographic Measurements From New Missions and Heritage Data Sets' is particularly noteworthy, as the aim of this session is to foster scientific applications of satellite measurements from past and current missions to study variability of the ocean and its relationships with changes in other elements of the Earth system, including atmosphere, cryosphere, and land.
We invite contributions to all aspects of satellite oceanography associated with the use of satellite observations and derived estimates of various oceanographic parameters, including sea surface temperature, height, and salinity, ocean surface wind and current, ocean colour, and sea ice. Potential topics include scientific analysis of these data and their assimilation into models. Synergistic use of satellite measurements of different oceanic parameters is particularly encouraged.
