The objective of this ESA-sponsored workshop is to bring together the world's 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.
The workshop takes place at NPL, Teddington, UK, and is free to attend. It will consist of both oral and poster presentations and facilitated discussion structured into six half-day sessions:
Science requirements for LST, IST and SST applications: climate, meteorology and oceanography
The space based element: current and future sensors capabilities and challenges
Metrological framework: traceability and uncertainty, sampling and scaling, representativeness
Post-launch validation: performance, traceability and uncertainty of field/aircraft deployed radiometers
Post-launch validation: non-returnable measurement systems
Establishing a sustainable framework of measurements to ensure fit-for-purpose data to meet the needs of society
The deadline for submitting a short extract has been extended. If you would like to submit a short abstract (~300 words) for consideration by the international scientific committee, please contact: email@example.com by 8 September 2017.
