25 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry Symposium

24 - 29 September 2018

Following on from the 15 Years and 20 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry Symposia in 2006 and 2012, both deemed very successful landmarks by the participants and the readership of the Proceedings, we have now reached the 25-year anniversary of the first supply of ERS-1 and TOPEX/Poseidon data products to the Altimetry Community.

 

To mark the occasion, the European Space Agency (ESA) in collaboration with the French Space Agency (CNES) is organising an exceptional Symposium on "25 years of Progress in Radar Altimetry". The event will take place in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, Azores Archipelago (Portugal) from 24 to 29 September 2018, and will be sponsored by other partner agencies and organisations supporting the development of altimetry.

 

Along with the symposium, related events will take place in the same week which includes the annual meeting of the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) and the International DORIS Service (IDS) Workshop.

 

Registration deadline: 31 July 2018

8th Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing

10 - 14 September 2018

The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing dedicated to training the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from EO missions (e.g. the Copernicus Sentinels) for science and applications development.

 

The course is part of ESA's EO Science for Society – Scientific Exploitation element of EOEP-5 (the fifth cycle of ESA's Earth Observation Envelope Programme).

 

Post graduate, PhD students, post-doctoral research scientists and users from European countries and Canada are invited to apply to the 5-day course which will be held at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom during 10–14 September 2018. Research scientists and students from all other countries are also welcome to apply, subject to availability of spaces.

EO Summer School 2018

30 July - 10 August 2018

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 two-week course, held in ESA/ESRIN (near Rome, Italy) from 30 July to 10 August 2018, aims to provide students with an integrated end-to-end perspective going from measurement techniques to end-user applications. Courses include lectures covering issues related to Remote Sensing, Earth System Modelling and Data Assimilation as well as hands-on computing exercises on the processing of EO data. Keynote lectures on global change issues are also given to discuss the current state of the science of global change and its relationship to society in order to help students appreciate how their specific field fits into a broader scientific and political context. For more information, please see previous programme, news or video.

42nd COSPAR Scientific Assembly

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.


Onsite Registration is open

38th Annual EARSeL Symposium

09 - 12 July 2018

Organised by European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL), the 38th Annual EARSeL Symposium will be held in Chania, Greece, between the 09 - 12 July 2018 .


Climate change, over population, over exploitation of natural resources, all put pressure on the sustainability of most human activities. Many believe that we must drastically change our ways, in order to adapt to the new circumstances. In order to decide on what is required to change, we must investigate the possibilities and to do so, we require data and information. So how can remote sensing methods help fill this gap and lead us to sustainability?


The symposium offers the opportunity to EARSeL and non-EARSeL members to interact and present preliminary research between the dedicated Special Interest Groups (SIG) workshops that are organised every two years. It is a great opportunity for all interested parties to expose their research to an international scientific community. The topics addressed in each annual symposium are related to the EARSeL's Special Interest Groups, as well as contemporary topics of high interest. Submissions and presentations should be focusing on one or more of those topics, as sessions will be mostly organised according to those topics.

EO4Alps - The Alps from space workshop

27 - 29 June 2018

The European Space Agency is organising the 'EO4Alps' The Alps from Space Workshop, which will take place from 27 to 29 June 2018 at the Villa Blanka Conference Center, in Innsbruck, Austria.

The focus of this workshop is to assess the opportunities for EO research and development as well as downstream activities that may be the basis for future ESA investments to address some of the key information needs relevant to the Alpine Region. These opportunities will be framed with respect to emerging Earth science, development of novel applications, testing innovative information services and implementing required upgrades to capabilities to manage and manipulate large data volumes.

The objectives of the workshop are:

  1. To assess the status and priority interests in the European Alpine Region for Earth Science, geo-information and operational monitoring
  2. Review the main activities, projects and initiatives taking place in the different Alpine application areas, where Earth observation from space can contribute
  3. Evaluate the potential of the increasing observation capacity by satellites to address needs for science, applications and information services in the European Alpine region
  4. Characterise and address data collection and analysis gaps and define high-level requirements for supporting ICT solutions to advance EO data infrastructure capabilities in the Alpine region
