In the context of the EO Science for Society Programme Element, the European Space Agency is organising ATMOS 2018, a conference on the topical theme Atmosphere aimed at exploiting data from ESA and EO Missions for science and application development.
The purpose of this conference is to provide scientists and data users with the opportunity to present first-hand and up-to-date results from their ongoing research and application development activities by using data from past and current atmospheric instruments like Sentinel-5P, Aeolus, ERS-2, Envisat, Metop, and ESA Third Party Missions. Another aspect will be on discussing activities regarding future missions.
The outcome of this conference will help to further shape the next generation of R&D activities in the frame of ESA's Earth Observation Programme.
10 - 14 December 2018
Location: Washington, D.C., USA
The upcoming AGU Fall Meeting 2018 Conference runs Monday to Friday from 10 to 14 December 2018, in Washington, D.C., USA.
Quite noteworthy for the SMOS User community, the session "The global water cycle: linkages of ocean salinity with the atmosphere and terrestrial hydrology" highlights water cycle research that describes linkages between the ocean, atmosphere, and land hydrology.
Contributions are invited on all aspects of water cycle research including analyses undertaken using in situ and remote observations from current (e.g., SMAP, SMOS, GRACE, GPM, GCOM-W), past (e.g., Aquarius, TRMM), and future (e.g., SWOT, GRACE-FO) satellite missions, estimates based on numerical models, data assimilation systems, and climate model projections. Particularly welcome are contributions that consider multiple realms (the ocean, atmosphere, land surface and subsurface), and provide compelling evidence for linkages between these, describing coherent water cycle variability and change.

Course Overview: Earth Observation is being increasingly used for operational applications in agriculture. Information derived from remotely sensed data and combined with other information, is being used to support decisions for agricultural development. This increased interest in remote sensing of agriculture has prompted more coordinated efforts, nationally, regionally and globally. To mark 50 years of remote sensing in India and to contribute to this international coordination, an international workshop is planned to review the status of Earth Observation for agricultural monitoring, at global, regional and national levels, and to discuss and propose the future course of action.
The ISPRS WG III/10, GEOGLAM, ISRS Joint International Workshop on "Earth Observations for Agricultural Monitoring upcoming will be held in New Delhi, India from 18 to 20 February 2019.

Course Overview: The main goal of the Joint Summer School 2019 is to provide participants with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterize complex terrain and object features using close- and near range remote sensing techniques. The Summer School will be the third edition after two successful implementations in 2015 and 2017.
Theoretical lectures will be complemented by fieldwork assignments and hands-on data processing sessions using different novel software. The assignments will be divided into two different tracks. One track will focus on mountain research, the other on sensor and data processing techniques.
A variety of sensor systems will be available for data acquisition in the high mountain surroundings of the summer school venue, including terrestrial laser scanners, unmanned aerial vehicles and spectral cameras.
A poster session on the participants' current research interests and work will stimulate open exchange and discussion between students and lecturers in a relaxed atmosphere.
