Reissued: Call for Earth Explorer 9 proposals
14 December 2016
Scientists involved in Earth observation have another opportunity to submit a proposal for ESA's next Earth Explorer satellite mission.
Earth Explorer missions are launched to provide a stream of measurements to explore and understand different aspects of the Earth system, and demonstrate new space technologies.
So far, eight missions have been selected for implementation. Each was proposed by the scientific community and realised through a user-driven selection process to ensure that each missions address key Earth-science questions.
As part of this process, ESA released a call for proposals for the ninth Earth Explorer in November 2015. However, in this case, none of the proposals met the boundary conditions as stated in the call. As a result, ESA has updated some conditions and has reissued the call.
