5th International GOCE User Workshop

25 - 28 November 2014

The European Space Agency, in partnership with the International Oceanographic Commission is organising the 5th International GOCE User Workshop at UNESCO, Paris from 25 to 28 November 2014.

This workshop is intended to provide current and future users of GOCE data products with the opportunity to obtain the latest information on the satellite gravity mission, its performance as well as details regarding the latest release of the data products and user services and tools. The workshop is seeking the presentation of new results based on GOCE data in all application areas. Prior to the workshop, the European Space Agency plans to release the fifth generation gravity field solutions based on GOCE data.

Understanding the Carbon and Water Cycles using SMOS data and models

13 - 14 November 2014

This SMOS workshop, organised by CESBIO and ESA will be held in Toulouse, France from 13 to 14 November 2014.

The workshop aims to bring together the EO, SMOS, Earth system science and modelling communities involved in the observation, characterisation and forecasting of land surface processes and their impacts. In particular, the event represents a unique opportunity to facilitate the communications and scientific exchanges among these different communities in order to enhance the coordination of specific scientific efforts and advocate for a common view of major scientific needs and priority areas for the future.

The outcome of this workshop will include recommendations to further advance (1) the development and validation of novel SMOS products and observations (also in synergy with other EO datasets), (2) the development of novel applications and science results that may exploit the full capacity of SMOS in the context of key land processes and their impacts on climate (3) the effective assimilation of SMOS observations and products into advanced model / data assimilation systems/approaches and (4) the formulation of a research agenda that may guide ESA and other institutions to initiate dedicated future activities.

8th Coastal Altimetry Workshop

23 - 24 October 2014

The Coastal Altimetry Community, that is the international community of scientists working on development and applications of altimetry in the coastal zone, will convene for the 8th Coastal Altimetry Workshop at the university city of Konstanz, on the German shore of Lake Constance, from 23 to 24 October 2014.

This Workshop aims at being once again 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.

The workshop will be held just before the SARAL/AltiKa Workshop and the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) meeting, both also taking place in Konstanz on the following week, so that delegates can conveniently attend all these related events.

 

A SAR Altimetry Training Course will also be organised from 21 to 22 October 2014.

3rd Swarm Science Meeting

19 - 20 June 2014

DTU Space will host the 3rd Swarm Science Meeting, sponsored by the European Space Agency (ESA), at the IDA Conference Centre, Copenhagen, in Denmark, from 19 to 20 June 2014.

The aim of this meeting is to present the first science results from Swarm and to report on the status of the mission following the commissioning phase. The Level 1 data products will be released to the community and plans for the use of the data and potential projects will be discussed. Finally, an international media event will be held to highlight Swarm's role within Earth sciences.

Big Data from Space event

05 - 07 June 2013

The European Space Agency in Frascati is organising a 'Big data from Space' event on 5-7 June 2013 to address the barriers that hamper an effective use of large volumes of Earth observation data.

The event will focus on issues associated with the organisation and delivery of large volumes of contemporary and historical Earth observations, either space-based or from ground (including ubiquitous information-sensing mobile devices, aerial sensory technologies and wireless sensor networks).

 

Registration deadline: 27 May 2013
