European Commission (EC) and European Space Agengsy (ESA) are working together to define a common scientific agenda identifying the set of grand science challenges in Polar research that may drive joint EC-ESA scientific activities in the coming few years.
A workshop for Earth Observation for polar science will be held 17-19 June, 2020 in the Tivoli Congress Center in Copenhagen, Denmark. The workshop aims at assessing the latest advancement in the use of Earth observation (EO) technology for Polar science, exploring the main challenges and opportunities for the coming decade and consulting with the community to contribute to define a common scientific agenda for the future.
The meeting is open to EO scientists, polar researchers and students, modellers, Earth system and climate scientists, industry, operational agencies, policy makers, representatives of local communities and other stakeholders interested in sharing their knowledge and experience and contributing to drive the European polar scientific agenda.
The workshop´s objectives are:
Call for Abstracts and for Discussion Sessions
Invitation to submit an abstract for the morning plenary sessions and/or a proposal for the science challenges afternoon breakout discussion sessions can be found here.
The morning sessions of the first two days will consist of state-of-the-art scientific talks within these categories:
The objective of the workshop is to define a scientific agenda identifying a set of major scientific challenges to be faced in the coming years that may drive future ESA and DG-RTD coordinated investments in Polar research. To this end, the community is invited to propose discussion sessions focused on major Polar science challenges to define a number of major community initiatives and experiments that will require an integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to science involving advances in Earth Observation satellite data, in-situ observations, modelling, interdisciplinary research and the use of novel technologies in a coordinated manner.
