POSTPONED TO JUNE 2021: CryoSat 10th Anniversary Science Conference
Event Type: Other
When: 5 October 2020 to 8 October 2020
Due to COVID-19, the CryoSat 10th Anniversary Science Conference has been rescheduled to take place 14-17 June 2021, in Taormina (Sicily).
Over the last 10 years, CryoSat has not only delivered a wealth of information about Earth’s changing ice, but has also surpassed expectations with a range of results that go far beyond its original goals. While the conference focuses the latest scientific results from the mission, it is also a celebration of the remarkable contribution that CryoSat has made to our understanding of the cryosphere and its role in the Earth system and the climate, and, in turn, the impacts on society.
Objectives of the Conference: as well as providing critical information about ice, CryoSat has also demonstrated that it can offer a valuable source of data for oceanography, hydrology and geodesy.
The conference therefore provides a forum for international scientists and operational users to present and share state-of-the-art CryoSat-based results, its decadal contribution to science and future perspectives in the following areas:
- Sea ice
- Greenland and Antarctica icesheets
- Glaciers and ice caps
- Oceans and marine gravity
- Icebergs & ice shelves
- 10 Years of operations, synergies and future missions
