The European Space Agency is organizing the fifth Advances in SAR Oceanography workshop, SeaSAR 2018, which will be hosted in ESA-ESRIN from 7 to 10 May 2018.
The workshop is part of the #EOScience4Society – Scientific Exploitation Programme element aimed at exploiting data from ESA and operational EO Missions (e.g. Copernicus Sentinels) for science and application development.
The official language of the workshop is English. The workshop is organised around:
- Papers and posters selected by the Scientific Committee
- Round table discussions seeded with questions prepared by the Scientific Committee and ESA
- Demonstration of software tools
The main objectives for the workshop are:
- Report on progress/status of recommendations of SeaSAR 2012
- Provide a forum for scientific exchange and to assess the state of art in SAR coastal and marine applications, virtual labs, tools, virtual platforms.
- Initiate and encourage close collaboration between individual research groups
- Stimulating and supporting the exploitation of the ESA Earth Explorer and Copernicus Sentinel Missions. Formulate recommendations for algorithm and new products development
- Present exploitation results from spaceborne SAR missions and application projects
- Present SAR marine and ice services developed under the Copernicus Programme
- Group-work and discussion, to develop new skills in the application of complementary satellite for ocean remote sensing data sets and their application in synergy for science and applications serving society.
The workshop is open to ESA Principal Investigators, co-investigators, Sentinel-1 users, scientists, students, representatives from national, European and international space agencies and value adding industries.No participation fees will be charged. Participants are expected to finance their own travel and accommodation expenses and no student grants are foreseen for this workshop.
The official language of the workshop is English.
