Call for abstracts: ESA CCI Soil Moisture User Workshop and 4th Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application Workshop
The ESA CCI Soil Moisture team is keen on your feedback to constantly improve the data set and also see its various applications. Thus, we invite you to participate to our upcoming workshops in 2017.
The next CCI Soil Moisture User Workshop will be held at the University of Technology in Vienna on 18th September 2017. Users from any relevant application area are invited to present their experiences with the CCI soil moisture data at the user workshop and provide ideas for future product improvements.
The following 4th Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application Workshop, to be held from 19th to 20th September 2017 also at the University of Technology in Vienna, aims to discuss and reconcile recent methodological advances in the development, validation and application of global satellite soil moisture data.
Previous Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application workshops were held at the European Space Agency in Frascati (Italy, in 2013), at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in Amsterdam (Netherlands, in 2014) and at the Millennium Broadway Hotel in New York (USA, in 2016). The workshop series is unique in that it brings together satellite soil moisture users and developers to focus on both the derivation and exploration of soil moisture data from both passive and active microwave satellite missions (SMAP, SMOS, ASCAT, AMSR-2, Sentinel-1, and other legacy missions).
The goal of the last Soil Moisture User workshop, held from 28th to 29th April 2016 at the premises of ESA ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, was to update key users on the latest status and future plans, provide hands-on information about the EODC facilities and its role within the CCI, support cross ECV activities and learn from experiences to further improve the dataset. The research interests of the 25 workshop participants that came from the U.S., China and Europe cover most of the GEO societal benefit areas with a focus on climate, water, agriculture, disasters and weather. The outcomes of the workshop and user feedback will be taken into account for future product updates.
