Following successful previous meetings, the aim of this 3rd consultation meeting is to provide a forum for the satellite Land, Ice and Lake Surface Temperature (LST / IST / LSWT) and Land Surface Air Temperature (LSAT) communities to share experiences and review developments in satellite retrievals and data sets.
The meeting will consolidate current User Requirements, assess the provision of LST, IST and LSWT products from the GlobTemperature Data Portal, and explore and communicate understanding on nomenclature, validation and intercomparison approaches, and uncertainties.
By bringing the international land surface temperature and emissivity communities together the meeting aims to cultivate communication between users and data providers, providing a forum to develop strategies and collaborations to maximise the uses of satellite surface temperature data for the long term.
There will be opportunities at the meeting to deliver oral/poster presentations for which participants can submit abstracts as part of the registration process. The deadline for abstract submission is Wednesday 1st April 2015.
A limited amount of travel support is available and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis subject to the approval of ESA. Please contact the GlobTemperature Project Scientist – Darren Ghent (firstname.lastname@example.org) – to put forward any request for travel support.
A preliminary programme will be released in due course.
