MicroRad 2020

23 - 27 March 2020

The 16th Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Environment (MicroRad 2020) will be held from 23 to 27 March 2020 at the Santa Apollonia Auditorium in Florence, Italy. The event is organised by the Centro di Telerilevamento a Microonde (CETEM) and the Istituto di Fisica Applicata (IFAC-CNR).

 

Participation in MicroRad2020 meeting is open to all individuals interested in or working in the fields of passive microwave remote sensing; the microwave radiometry community is invited to present new research results and instrument designs in the field of remote sensing of land, ocean, cryosphere and atmosphere.

 

Thanks to an ESA sponsorship, travel support can be provided to a selection of 10 students, to encourage the participation of young scientists to the event. In order to be eligible for receiving the support, students must submit an abstract to the conference as first author. Further details on the MicroRad2020 website.

AGU Fall Meeting 2019 - Session 'The global water cycle'

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.

European Space Week 2019

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:

  • How space solutions can help to strengthen the EU's position as a global leader in climate action
  • New space economy for sustainable growth
  • Sustainable space economy: Saving space for future generations
  • Space solutions for a sustainable Arctic

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.

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:

  • provide validation teams an up-to-date overview of the Sentinel-5P mission
  • present S5PVT calibration/validation results about the Sentinel-5P core products
  • assess the usefulness of Sentinel-5P core products for dedicated applications
  • discuss possible improved uncertainty characterization of the Sentinel-5P core products
  • foster cooperation and synergies among Cal/Val teams

Advanced Ocean Training Course 2019

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.

4th ESA EARSEL CNR School - Remote Sensing for Forest Fires

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.
