Monitoring Tropical Storms for Emergency Preparedness

03 and 10 May 2018

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course Overview: Tropical storms have major impacts, including loss of life and destruction of property. In 2017 alone, the United States experienced three tropical storms with more than $1 billion in losses. Open source satellite data can be used before, during, and after a storm for monitoring and response. A storm's intensity, path, wind, precipitation, storm surge, and flooding can be derived from historical and near real-time satellite observations. In this introductory webinar, participants will learn about the NASA data and tools they can use to monitor tropical storms.

International Review Workshop on Satellite Altimetry Cal/Val Activities & Applications

23 - 26 April 2018

Organisation: ESA, EUMETSAT and the IAG/IUGG Commission 2

Location: Crete, Greece

Workshop overview:

The aim of this Review Workshop is to present the latest research results in the field of satellite altimetry calibration and altimetry applications for monitoring ocean changes and for improving Earth observation in an objective, continuous, homogeneous and reliable manner, free of errors and biases, and tied from one altimetry mission to the next. The intention is to support long-term monitoring of climate changes by understanding better environmental changes on world's oceans, terrestrial surface waters, but also on Arctic and Antarctic polar regions. The final outcome is to establish and promote a scientific roadmap with procedures, protocols, guidelines, and best practices in an open and transparent way to be followed by any international group working on satellite altimetry to attain SI traceability of their measurements, results and data products.
