Satellite validation international workshop

Tuesday 20 June 2017 - Wednesday 21 June 2017

Validating Copernicus Sentinel data using Fiducial Reference Measurements.

The workshop will serve as a forum for discussing the performance of Sentinel -1, -2 and -3 at retrieving ocean colour, sea surface temperature in the open ocean and coastal environments. It will identify potential strategies for the validation of Sentinel missions in the future. 

The workshop will address four main themes:

  •      Fiducial Reference Measurement methods and protocols
  •      Ocean Colour validation 
  •      Sea Surface Temperature validation 
  •      Validation of upper ocean dynamics

Presentations from participants are welcome.

Papers from the workshop will be published in a remote sensing journal special issue (submitted by September 2017).

Abstract submission closes: 28th February 2017
