Event Details


The objective of this ESA sponsored workshop is to bring together the worlds expertise in Earth surface (Land, Water, Ice) temperature measurements under the auspices of Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) to review the current state of the art in measurement accuracy for satellite validation. The workshop will consider the outputs and results from the recent CEOS comparison of fiducial reference measurements/instruments and will look to conclude with the development of an internationally coordinated strategy to ensure that the global reference measurement infrastructure is adequate to meet the future needs and aspirations of all users. 
  • Session 1: Science requirements for LST, IST and SST applications: Climate, Meteorology and Oceanography
  • Session 2: The space based element: current and future sensors capabilities and challenges
  • Session 3: Metrological framework: Traceability and uncertainty, sampling and scaling, representativeness
  • Session 4: Post-launch validation: performance, traceability and uncertainty of field/aircraft deployed radiometers
  • Session 5: Post-launch validation: non-returnable measurement systems
  • Session 6: Establishing a sustainable framework of measurements to ensure fit for purpose data to meet the needs of society.

If you would like to submit a short abstract (~300 words) for consideration by the international scientific committee please contact:  by 15 June 2017.
