The 3rd Workshop
This workshop seeks to bring together scientists working in the fields of remote sensing or modeling of surface properties and satellite data assimilation. Microwave, infrared, and visible applications will be considered, both in passive and active modes. Topics will include studies of the surface emissivity and temperature of land surfaces, sea ice, open water, snow. A significant part of the workshop will be dedicated to the exploitation of microwave, and infrared observations in NWP with particular emphasis on impact studies with the assimilation of surface sensitive observations. The workshop will also be an opportunity to make an early assessment of recent results obtained with the SMOS mission and to discuss the developments for the missions to be launched in the near future such as FY-3 MWRI missions and discuss the future missions such as NPP/JPSS, GPM, Megha-Tropiques, GCOM-W and SMAP. A non-exhaustive list of the workshop topics is included below. Scientists interested in these fields are invited to send their contributions in the shape of a one-page summary via e-mail to all email addresses listed below. The abstract should include a description of the proposed contribution, the name(s) of the author(s) and affiliation(s), mailing and electronic addresses and should be sent no later than July 20th, 2011.
This workshop is made possible by the support of Nanjing Univeristy of Information Science and Technology (NUIST), the National Meteorological Center (NMC)/Chinese Meteorological Administration (CMA), the NOAA/NESDIS Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR), and the International TOVS Working Group.
