›From Science to Operations for the Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR) Mission - NEW DATES
Copernicus is a European system for monitoring the Earth in support of European policy. It includes Earth Observation satellites (notably the Sentinel series developed by the European Space Agency (ESA)), ground-based measurements and, services to process data to provide users with reliable and up-to-date information through a set of Copernicus operational services related to environmental and security issues.
The Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR) mission is being developed as a High Priority Copernicus Mission to support the Integrated European Policy for the Arctic (https://eeas.europa.eu/arctic-policy/eu-arctic-policy_en).
This meeting will provide an opportunity for you to contribute to the development of the CIMR mission by bridging the gap between scientific measurements and operational services based on the capability of the CIMR mission in support of Copernicus.
The objectives of the meeting are:
- To present the CIMR mission capability and anticipated products.
- To review the scientific questions that can be addressed by CIMR in support of the Arctic Policy.
- To review approaches to Level-2 Geophysical retrievals capitalizing on the multi-frequency measurements of CIMR to address Arctic Policy needs.
- To review approaches to CIMR product uncertainty derivation, product needs and application.
- To review global application of CIMR products in support of Copernicus Services.
- To provide technical input from operational services regarding CIMR products.
- To review validation approaches and challenges for CIMR products.
The meeting will be based on a combination of plenary sessions and discussion-group meetings and is open to anyone with an interest in the CIMR mission. Places are limited and a selection of participants will be based on a review of abstract contributions.
Note: In recent months Coronavirus (Covid-19) has become an international issue. Accordingly, we have postponed the CIMR Science to Operations Meeting to 10 - 12 May 2021 at ESTEC subject to a favourable status of the Covid-19 situation at that time. We believe that this is in the interest of all our personal safety. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cost.Tweets by spaceagenda
