Minimize Swarm 9th Data Quality Workshop

The 9th  Swarm Data Quality Workshop (SDQW) was hosted by the Czech Technical University in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic, from 16 to 20 September 2019.

The Swarm DQW#9 was successful, with more than 130 EU and non-EU participants, 110 talks, 11 sessions and numerous discussions.

 The workshop has allowed to:

  • Provide an overview of Swarm Mission Status and future plans
  • Discuss on Swarm data quality status, correction improvements (e.g. new ASM and VFM dB_Sun models) and evolutions
  • Present progress in Swarm-based visualization tools and data processing approaches from virtual research environment
  • Discussion with the Swarm community on the future of the satellite constellation regarding the counter rotating orbit configuration in 2021

The Swarm DQW#9 was an occasion to discuss synergetic benefits obtained from other sensor systems through future cooperation with the ESA Science Directorate and partner agencies.

A dedicated session on Swarm / Chinese CSES mission synergies was organized for the second time to further structure future joint Cal-Val activities and scientific cooperation.

The Swarm DQW#9 has allowed to consolidate/update 40 recommendations from the SDQW#8 as well as to identify 23 new SDQW#9 recommendations.

These 63 DQW commendations will be used to refine the roadmap for future Swarm product evolutions, services, ESA/DISC ITTs and science activities.

The SDQW#9 detailed program and the Summary Recommendation Report  are made accessible.
