4 - 7 February 2020
The Coastal Altimetry Community i.e. the international community of scientists, engineers and managers working on developing applications of altimetry in the coastal zone, will convene for the 12th Edition of the Coastal Altimetry Workshop (CAW-12) at ESA-ESRIN in Frascati (Italy), from 04 to 07 February 2020.
A Coastal Altimetry Training for Early Career Scientists is scheduled on the first day of the workshop.
The Workshop aims at once again being a lively forum for a community-led review of the science and applications of coastal altimetry, from data processing through emerging applications to new technologies; it will feature studies using the latest missions (Sentinel-3A/B, CryoSat, HY-2, AltiKa and Jason-3) and the anticipation of synergies with the SWOT mission.
Dedicated sessions will cover Sea Level, Dynamic Topography, Currents, Winds and Waves, Sea State, Extreme Events, etc., exploiting altimetry and other data for both real-time monitoring and long-term change studies.
9 - 13 December 2019
The AGU Fall Meeting 2019 Conference is scheduled to take place from 09 to 13 December 2019, in San Francisco, California, USA.
Particularly interesting for the SMOS User community, the session "The global water cycle: Coupling and Exchanges between the ocean, land, and atmosphere" highlights water cycle research that describes linkages between the ocean, atmosphere, and land hydrology.
Contributions are invited on all aspects of water cycle research including analyses undertaken using in situ and spaceborne observations from current (e.g., SMAP, SMOS, GRACE-FO, GPM, GCOM-W), past (e.g., Aquarius, TRMM, GRACE), and future (e.g., SWOT, CIMR) satellite missions, estimates based on numerical models, data assimilation systems, as well as climate model projections and theoretical contributions.
We particularly welcome studies that consider multiple realms (the ocean, atmosphere, land surface and subsurface), and provide compelling evidence for linkages between these, describing coherent water cycle variability and change.
We welcome global and regional assessments across these interfaces, and contributions that demonstrate what needs to be observed to ensure that long-term changes in the water cycle are accurately quantified.
3 - 5 December 2019
The European Space Week will be held at the Helsinki Congress Paasitorni in Helsinki, Finland, from 3 to 5 December, 2019. This year's European Space Week focuses on the following central themes:
Bringing together business, policy-makers, international experts and the space application user community, the event will present first-hand insights into the European Union's Space Programmes Copernicus and Galileo and updates on the New Space Economy, as well as discussing how space solutions can contribute to a sustainable Europe and a sustainable future.
With a mix of keynotes, panel discussions, networking opportunities, business matchmaking sessions and exhibitions, the EU Space Week provides the perfect setup for a productive exchange of game-changing ideas, future trends and current challenges.
Registration is open
18 - 22 November 2019
The VH-RODA workshop will be held in Frascati, Italy from 18 to 22 November 2019. The workshop, hosted by ESA/ESRIN, will provide an open forum for the presentation and discussion of the current status and future developments related to the calibration and validation of space borne very high-resolution SAR and optical sensors and data products.
The Very High-resolution Radar & Optical Data Assessment (VH-RODA) workshop will address the quality and capability of very high-resolution SAR and optical instruments from public and commercial remote sensing platforms. The workshop will focus on the exchange of information regarding data quality, instrument calibration and characterization methodologies, related procedures, on-board systems and needed ground-based infrastructures. The VH-RODA workshop is part of ESA's continuing commitment to remote sensing technology as an important tool in providing information to address critical science and societal matters.
Note that the VH-RODA workshop will be organised consecutively with the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) Working Group on Calibration and Validation (WGCV) SAR Subgroup, Synthetic Aperture Radar Workshop 2019 (CEOS SAR 2019). The CEOS SAR 2019 workshop will focus on current and future issues related to the calibration and validation of space borne SAR sensors and data products.
11 - 14 November 2019
The purpose of this workshop is to gather feedback from the S5PVT about the uncertainty characterisation of all Sentinel-5P products that have been released to the public by the time of the S5PVT Workshop.
The objectives of the S5PVT workshop are to:
04 - 08 November 2019
ESA, in cooperation with the Technical University of Crete, is organising an advanced Ocean Synergy Training Course devoted to training the next generation of Earth Observation scientists to exploit data from ESA and Third Party Mission instruments for ocean science and application development (e.g. with the Copernicus Sentinels). The course will be held at the Venetian Arsenali building at the Center of Mediterranean Architecture, Chania, in Crete (Greece) from 04 to 08 November 2019.
Using a series of lectures and laboratory classes, group-work and discussion, the aim of the course is to develop new skills in the application of complementary satellite ocean remote sensing data sets and their application in synergy for science and applications serving society.
30 September - 1 October 2019
On the occasion of the 12th EARSel Forest Fires SIG Workshop that will be held from 3 to 5 October 2019 in Rome, Italy, a Training Course will be held on the application of active and passive remote sensing techniques for fire research.
The course 'Remote Sensing for Forest Fires' will take place from 30 September to 1 October 2019 at ESA / ESRIN, Frascati, Italy (near Rome). The purpose of this course is to disseminate and discuss research methods and technologies of active and passive Earth Observation for applications related to forest fires.
The experts leading the course will focus on the use of optical and radar sensors for active fire mapping, burned area mapping, soil organic matter, soil moisture, fire emissions and time series analysis.
The practicals will utilise Virtual Machines from RUS Copernicus, and will use a variety of data (Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3, Sentinel-5P) and software (e.g. SNAP, EOBrowser).
Applications are open for early career researchers, students, phD students and young professionals from European institutions and Canada with background in Remote Sensing and working in topics related to wildfire. Applicants from other countries are welcome to apply subject to availability of space.
Extended application deadline: 6 September 2019
