25 - 29 May 2015
The 2nd SMOS Science Conference is jointly organised by ESA, CNES and SMOS-MODE and will take place at ESA-ESAC, near Madrid (Spain) from 25 to 29 May 2015.
The focus of this conference will deviate from previous events in that the emphasis will be on applications of SMOS data, including operational services, the development of novel data products, the synergistic use of SMOS data with other data sources and the potential of SMOS data for the generation of long-term data sets. The workshop will also cover common themes such as the quality of the Level 1 data products and calibration and validation activities.
The 2nd SMOS Science Conference will be preceded by a SMOS Training Course from 18 to 22 May 2015, organised by CESBIO and held as well at the ESA-ESAC premises near Madrid.
23 - 27 March 2015
The European Space Agency, in the context of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) element, is organising the 9th International Workshop Fringe 2015 'Advances in the Science and Applications of SAR Interferometry and Sentinel-1 InSAR'. The event will be hosted in ESA-ESRIN in Frascati, Italy from 23 to 27 March 2015.
The workshop is open to scientists, Sentinel-1 data users, students, representatives from national, European and international space agencies, and value adding industries.
The official language of the workshop is English. No participation fees will be charged. Participants are expected to finance their own travel and accommodation expenses.
10 - 13 February 2015
The ADM-Aeolus Science and Cal/Val Workshop will take place at ESA-ESRIN in Frascati, Italy, from 10 to 13 February 2015.
The objective of the workshop is to bring scientists and Cal/Val Principle Investigators (PI) together at ESA to present and discuss the upcoming ADM-Aeolus mission and its products, science applications and Calibration and Validation aspects. Furthermore, the scientific community are invited to present their plans for the use of the Aeolus data and to start getting familiar with the expected products and product quality.
26 - 30 January 2015
The European Space Agency is jointly organising the 7th International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry, POLinSAR 2015, and the 1st BIOMASS Science workshop. The workshops will be held in ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy on the following dates:
The objectives of the workshops are to provide a forum for exchange on the latest advances and research in SAR polarimetry and to gather a scientific community for ESA's future BIOMASS mission.
10 - 12 December 2014
The European Space Agency, in the context of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) element INSARAP studies, is organising a technical workshop on Sentinel-1 TOPS interferometry. The workshop will be held at ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy from 10 to 12 December 2014.
The objectives of the workshop are to present Sentinel-1 interferometric results in TOPS mode, adapt InSAR and PSI processing techniques to TOPS SAR data, discuss the first InSAR and PSI results over selected pilot sites and assess the synergy between Sentinel-1 and previous C-band SAR missions. During the event, results obtained by the two InSARAP consortia will be presented.
Registration deadline: 01 December 2014
26 - 28 November 2014
Ocean Salinity Science & Salinity Remote Sensing Workshop will be held at Met Office, Exeter, United Kingdom from 26 to 28 November 2014. The 3 day workshop is an open meeting to review progress and future priorities for measuring ocean salinity.
The focus of this workshop will be: To review progress made in using Ocean Salinity data (SSS and subsurface), to identify scientific challenges and benefits of using satellite SSS data in the wider ocean community in synergy with other data sources (in situ, satellite, model); and thus, to foster the use of the new SSS data from space in the wider ocean and climate science communities.
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.
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.
