As you may know, four years ago, ESA, the Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Project of the WCRP and EGU organized the first EO and Cryosphere Science Conference in ESRIN. This meeting will be a followup to that meeting. We will be looking for a wide discussion and networking forum for the cryosphere, climate, hydrology, modeling and EO communities to review the latest advances in the use of EO for cryosphere science and discuss the main scientific opportunities and research challenges for the future.

The purpose of this topical conference, jointly organized by ESA and CliC, is:
