International Review Workshop On Satellite Altimetry Cal/Val activities and applications

23 - 26 April 2018

An International Review Workshop on Satellite Altimetry Cal/Val Activities and Applications is to be held in Chania, Crete, Greece, 23-26 April 2018. It is a Scientific Meeting sponsored by the European Space Agency, EUMETSAT and the IAG/IUGG Commission 2.

The aim is to present the latest research results in the field of satellite altimetry calibration and altimetry applications for monitoring ocean changes and for improving Earth observation in an objective, continuous, homogeneous and reliable manner, free of errors and biases, and tied from one altimetry mission to the next.

The objectives of the workshop is to help support long-term monitoring of climate changes by understanding better environmental changes on the world's oceans, terrestrial surface waters, but also on Arctic and Antarctic polar regions.

The final outcome is to establish and promote a scientific roadmap with procedures, protocols, guidelines, and best practices in an open and transparent way to be followed by any international group working on satellite altimetry to attain SI traceability of their measurements, results and data products.

European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2018

08 - 13 April 2018

The General Assembly 2018 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU 2018) will be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 8 to 13 April 2018. The assembly will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences, and is open to scientists of all nations.

The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

For the second year in a row, the EGU is offering a mentoring programme for novice conference attendees, students, and early career scientists at its annual General Assembly, to facilitate new connections that may lead to long-term professional relationships within the Earth, planetary, and space science communities. It promises to be a rewarding experience for both mentees and mentors, so do consider signing up within the Mentoring Programme application deadline of 31 January 2018.

LPVE2018 - Workshop on Land Product Validation and Evolution

27 February - 01 March 2018

Following the successful LPVE 2014, the European Space Agency (ESA) is inviting scientists and Cal/Val experts to present the latest results from their on-going research, including the evolution of products, the latest development in validation, the inter-comparison methodologies and the evolution of algorithms, at the 2018 Workshop on Land Product Validation and Evolution (LPVE 2018).

The workshop will be held at ESA/ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, from 27 February to 01 March 2018; it intends to address the following objectives:

  • Provide an overview on current land product Cal/Val approaches and protocols and their evolution
  • Revisit existing calibration and validation protocols and standards in the light of newly available satellite data, including Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3
  • Present land product inter-comparison methodologies (in situ, satellite-satellite)
  • Discuss data harmonisation approaches across sensors
  • Identify key recommendations for ESA land product algorithm evolution
  • Formulate recommendations for future land products and future Cal/Val activities
  • Encourage close collaboration between Cal/Val and research groups

2nd Sentinel-5P Validation Team Meeting and 1st Results Workshop

05 - 06 February 2018

In the frame of the Copernicus Programme, ESA is implementing the Sentinel-5 Precursor (S5P) mission on behalf of the European Commission in support of services and science related to air quality, climate and stratospheric ozone. Sentinel-5P was successfully launched on 13 October 2017 and is currently undergoing the satellite and TROPOMI commissioning.

This workshop, which will take place at ESA/ESTEC in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, aims at consolidating Calibration/Validation (Cal/Val) activities to be carried out during the S5P operational phase, starting in April 2018. This includes the review of existing Cal/Val projects of the original Sentinel-5P Announcement of Opportunity Call 2014, identification of new Cal/Val partners, Cal/Val gap analysis, presentation of Cal/Val tools and rehearsal activities.

In addition, the S5P mission status and first commissioning results will be presented and discussed in order to confirm and evolve Cal/Val requirements.

2nd Sentinel-2 Validation Team Meeting

29 - 31 January 2018

The objective of the Sentinel-2 Validation Team Meeting (S2VT) is to collect independent validation evidence and experimental data to support the Sentinel-2 Mission. The meeting will be held at ESRIN in Frascati, Italy from 29 to 31 January 2018. The S2VT aims at providing valuable feedback on the mission core products through the experience gained by S2VT members while exploiting Sentinel-2 data. Such recommendations will be taken into consideration by ESA.

In this framework, the S2VT aims at involving world-class expertise and activities, through shared benefit collaboration, that support the implementation of the Sentinel-2 validation activities and ensure the best possible outcomes for the Sentinel-2 mission.

The meeting will be structured around a set of plenary presentations given by expert practitioners working with Sentinel-2 and other similar missions to inform on the lessons learned and priorities based on experience, a poster session of potential cal/val community activities including validation campaigns and methods.
