The 2nd Arctic Products Validation and Evolution (APVE) will address the development, assessment and improvement of the broad spectrum of capabilities offered by Space-based Earth observation technology in response to high-latitude and Arctic stakeholders information needs; addressing National, Regional, and International interests and, focusing on existing agency data, and others in support of future capabilities (evolution) such as pooling resources (systems, programs, audience, etc.) and better operation support/amplified impact
In response to strategic priorities common to all high-latitude and Arctic Nations and most of which are Member States of the European Space Agency (ESA); ESA, in collaboration with the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), LOOKNorth (Canada) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is organizing the 2nd International Workshop on Arctic Products Validation and Evolution (APVE). The APVE Workshop II will foster the development, assessment and improvement of the broad spectrum of capabilities offered by Space-based Earth observation technology in response to high-Latitude and Arctic stakeholders information needs addressing National, Regional, and International interests. The focus of the second of three international workshops will be on existing agency data, and modeling and simulations of future capabilities (evolution). Scientists and validation experts are provided with the opportunity to present latest results from their on-going research, including the evolution of products, the development of validation processes, the inter-comparison methodologies and the evolution of algorithms. The workshop will focus primarily on optical imaging sensors supporting modeling and simulations with some elements of radar, from ESA missions and national missions. During this workshop results from recently reprocessed data sets will be presented and contributions for future ESA missions using existing data sets and validation infrastructures are encouraged. Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts for presentations and posters for the workshops.
