World Ocean Circulation User Consultation Meeting 2019

21 - 22 February 2019

Organisation: ESA

Location: Frascati, Italy

Overview:

A user consultation meeting is planned to take place on 21 and 22 February 2019 at ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, to prepare a roadmap for new initiatives on ocean circulation research and applications to be implemented in the ESA EO Science for Society programme element.


The world ocean circulation is the engine allowing energy, heat, momentum, chemicals and floating materials ranging from living resources to marine pollution to be transported over large distance around the Earth. The accurate knowledge of the ocean circulation at all time and space scales is becoming increasingly importance to many scientific, operational and commercial applications.


A large variety of active and passive remote-sensing instruments are in orbit today, which measurements both provide indirect knowledge about ocean surface currents at various spatial and temporal scales, also representing a surface signature of the ocean interior dynamics.


All these data, used in synergy, constitute a wealth of information to advance our understanding and estimation of the upper layer of the World Ocean Circulation.

Earth Observations for indigenous-led land management

5 - 19 February 2019

Organisation: NASA Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET), Conservation International (CI) and the AmeriGEOSS program of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO)

Location: Online training/webinar

Course Overview:

Indigenous territories are threatened by fires, illegal logging, mining, and other external land use activities. The sustainable management of such land, most effectively stewarded by indigenous peoples, is critical for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, increasing resilience to climate change, conserving biodiversity, and protecting the heritage of indigenous cultures.

Earth Observations for Indigenous-led Land Management (EO4IM) is a NASA-funded project implemented by a team from Conservation International (CI) and is aligned with the AmeriGEOSS program of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and the Dedicated Grant Mechanism (DGM) for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities. The project's objective is to strengthen the technical capacities of indigenous peoples' organizations in the Americas, and globally, through alignment with the DGM.

This introductory webinar series will share lectures, case studies, and demonstrations with representatives of indigenous peoples' organisations and will focus on how Earth observations (EO) data and tools can provide spatial information for forest monitoring, mapping, and responding to ecosystem threats. This series will help attendees strengthen their technical capacities to use EO data and tools to enhance their sustainable land management practices.

The course will have weekly, 1.5-hour sessions on 5, 12 and 19 February and will be held in Spanish and English.
