The Vienna University of Technology is organising the 4th Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application Workshop

APOLLO consortium partner the Vienna University of Technology (TU-WEIN) is organising the 4th Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application Workshop and the CCI Soil Moisture User Workshop in Wien, Austria. The workshops will be held between the 18th and the 20th of September 2017.

Satellite Soil Moisture and Application Workshop
The Satellite Soil Moisture and Application Workshop brings together experts from all around the world to discuss and reconcile recent methodological advances in the development, validation and application of global satellite soil moisture data.
The workshop follows up workshops held at the European Space Agency in Frascati (Italy, in 2013), at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in Amsterdam (Netherlands, in 2014) and at the Millenium Broadway Hotel in New York (USA, in 2016).
The workshop series is unique by bringing together satellite soil moisture users and developers to focus on both the derivation and exploration of soil moisture data from passive or active microwave satellite missions (SMAP, SMOS, ASCAT, AMRS-2, Sentinel-1, and other legacy missions).

CCI Soil Moisture User Workshop
The CCI Soil Moisture User Workshop is similar in scope, but focuses on users of the CCI Soil Moisture products. Users from any relevant application area are invited to present their experiences with the data and provide ideas for future product improvements. The CCI Soil Moisture User Workshop is an event organized within the framework of ESA’s Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Soil Moisture project.
