The 2nd GlobTemperature User Consultation Meeting will take place in Karlsruhe, Germany from 14:00 local time on 25th to 26th June 2014 and will be hosted by KIT.
GlobTemperature is an ESA Data User Element project aimed at improving the uptake of global-scale satellite land surface temperature by the broad research and operational user communities. The project will provide state-of-the-art LST data sets, access to data sets in user-friendly formats, and innovative merged data sets
The aim of this 2nd consultation meeting is to provide a forum for the satellite Land, Ice and Lake Surface Temperature (LST / IST / LSWT) communities to share experiences and review developments in satellite retrievals and data sets. The intention is for users to be able to identify requirements for new data sets, to develop collaborations with the data providers and to identify the key uses of satellite surface temperature data. The meeting will specifically foster the international development of strategies to support the satellite land surface temperature data providers and user communities for the long term. It will conclude with an open meeting on the international LST Working Group which is being initiated through GlobTemperature and other projects.
There will be opportunities at the meeting to deliver oral/poster presentations for which participants can submit abstracts as part of the registration process. Submissions are welcome on satellite data, in situ validation and model studies with surface temperature data. Further details are available at www.globtemperature.info.
