The European Space Agency is organising the fifth Advances in SAR Oceanography workshop, SeaSAR 2018, which will be hosted in ESA-ESRIN from 07 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 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.
