Event 2008 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference

EUMETSAT has the pleasure of welcoming experts in the field of meteorology, climatology and the environment to its 2008 Meteorological Satellite Conference which, for the first time ever, will take place on “home ground” in Darmstadt, from 8 – 12 September 2008.

Sessions have been categorised as follows:

  • Session 1 Future Systems
  • Session 2 Future Sensors and Calibration
  • Session 3 Oceanography
  • Session 4 Climate monitoring with operational satellites
  • Session 5 Nowcasting
  • Session 6 Data services for real time application
  • Session 7 Advanced sounding
  • Session 8 Monitoring land use
  • Session 9 Activities for learning in meteorology?
  • Session 10 Hydrometeorology?
  • Session 11  Atmospheric Composition
  • Session 12 Numerical Weather Prediction applications

Following the highly successful joint conference in Amsterdam in 2007, we are aiming to replicate this September the same high scientific content, the dynamic interchange of ideas and the favourable ambience. The programme follows roughly the same format, with three parallel sessions on most days, thereby ensuring only minimal non-acceptance of abstracts submitted, as well as poster displays which can be viewed during the entire week.  As always, there are some topics of wider interest and for this reason the programme includes four plenary sessions which all delegates are invited to follow. 2008 is also the year of the Jason-2 launch and the timing of the conference should be ideal to hear the first results.
