Remote Sensing for Climate Analysis

Description

Back to top

Remote sensing plays a critical role in many aspects of climate science, including real-time and long-term monitoring, forecast initialization, model verification, and statistical analysis. Remote sensing records now span multiple decades and provide information on multiple processes in the climate system. The ever-changing Earth-observing satellite constellation and the development and deployment of new remote sensing capabilities, including NASA’s planned Earth System Observatory and ESA’s Sentinel missions, present a timely opportunity to make advances in these areas, motivating the development of new techniques to analyze and assimilate large volumes of data with high spatial and temporal resolution. This workshop will bring together researchers from the remote sensing, data analysis, and climate science communities to explore applications of current- and next-generation remote sensing products and data analysis techniques to climate analysis and modeling.
