The meeting will provide a unique and timely forum for scientists and end-users of CryoSat data to share the state-of-the-art in research and applications, review mission achievements and prepare for the continued use of the CryoSat mission in the future.
Organised approximately seven years after launch of CryoSat, the meeting will highlight areas where the mission has made significant contribution including cryosphere, oceanography, geodesy, hydrology, topography, meteorology and climate change. Presentations on the use of CryoSat data for operational applications and demonstrations of novel scientific applications are also encouraged. The meeting will be instrumental to outline the international collaboration in the exploitation of data, to propose new scientific requirements, to identify new scientific challenges in view of the extension beyond 2019 and, in general, for its possible successor.
The meeting is held in parallel with the Fourth SWARM science meeting. There will be one-day joint session to address common thematic applications related to gravimetric applications.
Co-sponsored by a number of international institutions, the meeting is open to all interested CryoSat stakeholders and data users. There will be no conference fee but the participants are required to finance their own travel and accommodation.
