CryoSat Third User Workshop

12 - 14 March 2013

Organisation: European Space Agency (ESA)

Location: Dresden, Germany

Registration deadline: 18 January 2013

Workshop Overview:

ESA's Earth Explorer CryoSat mission, whose rebuilt spacecraft, Cryosat-2, was launched on 8 April 2010, is dedicated to precise monitoring of the changes in the thickness of marine ice floating in the polar oceans and variations in the thickness of the ice sheets overlying Greenland and Antarctica, as well as continental glaciers. Following a successful commissioning phase and after nearly one and half years of operations, new and greatly improved CryoSat processors (i.e. baseline B) were installed in February 2012, followed by the start of the reprocessing campaign. This activity will be completed in spring 2013.

Since the start of operations, the mission has been providing systematic data to the scientific community supported by validation and calibration activities to ensure high data quality. The first results were presented at main international conferences, at which great interest from the marine and gravity scientific community was confirmed.

This workshop is intended to provide a forum to present and discuss all topics related to the exploitation of the CryoSat mission and to identity novel scientific challenges.

Workshop on European Satellite Snow Monitoring Perspectives

04 - 05 December 2012

Organisation: European Space Agency (ESA) / EUMETSAT

Location: Darmstadt, Germany

Workshop Overview:

Satellite based snow monitoring capabilities have been developed in Europe over the last decade in projects such as EUMETSAT's Hydrology SAF, ESA's GMES PolarView and DUE GlobSnow, and the EC's FP7 Cryoland. Each of these has worked closely with their user communities and performed the necessary R&D to successfully implement information services addressing a broad spectrum of user needs including flood forecasting, climate research, meteorology, hydrology, water management, public risk, tourism, etc.

The aim of this workshop is to bring the major European satellite snow monitoring initiatives together with their key users, to:

  • Review the current state of development of European snow monitoring capabilities
  • Identify gaps and opportunities in meeting the users' needs and securing sustainable funding for the services
  • Define priorities for developments over the next 5-10 years which build on European expertise and satellite infrastructure to achieve sustainable information services which maximize benefits to users
  • Understand how these activities fit within GMES and the EC priorities over the next decade

Organisation: SELPER

Location: Cayenne, French Guiana

Final deadline for papers: 08 October 2012

Symposium Overview:

SELPER invites remote sensing experts from Latin America to meet and discuss the role of earth observation in global environmental governance and the green economy at the SELPER 2012 symposium.

Earth observation plays a key role in redefining goals of an effective global governance of the environment by providing essential information on a fast changing world. The SELPER 2012 symposium objective is to highlight Latin American remote sensing work in the area of setting and monitoring new policy targets for global environmental governance, eradication of poverty, and the green economy. At a historical moment when global crises impact finance, food security, migration, energy, water, biodiversity, desertification, natural disasters, globalisation, health, climate, and poverty, Earth observation is playing an increasing role in delivering key information on the status and dynamics of the environment to scientists and policy makers.

High resolution satellite imagery

08 - 10 November 2012

Organisation: University of Bern

Location: Bern, Switzerland

Workshop Overview:

High resolution satellite imagery - the magnifying glass for science

The geometric resolution of Earth observation satellites has increased continuously over the last decades. Ikonos, launched in 1999, marks the date when high resolution satellite imagery became available worldwide. Since then the performance of satellites increased significantly and data have become readily available at affordable cost. Imagery from this new generation of satellites opened up new research perspectives for many fields in science and liberal arts.

The workshop on high resolution satellite imagery will serve as a platform to exchange experience and discuss best practice rules for utilisation of Earth observation satellites like GeoEye, WorldView-I and II, but also TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X to name the most prominent ones. The conference presents current work or work in progress that take advantage of the increase in spatial, spectral, radiometric and temporal resolution of high resolution satellites for Earth observation.

Showing 316 - 330 of 342 results.
