On behalf of the Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Project of the WCRP, the European Geosciences Union (EGU) and the European Space Agency (ESA), we are pleased to invite you to the Italian center of the European Space Agency, ESRIN, for the Earth Observation and Cryosphere Science Conference that will take place from 13th to 16th November 2012. This conference aims to provide a forum for world-class scientists to present new research results and focus on and discuss future challenges on EO technology for cryosphere science.
The wide variety of satellite remote sensing techniques used in cryosphere research, and the increasing observational capacity provided by current and future optical, radar, laser altimetry, interferometry and gravimetry observations, provides a major opportunity to advance our knowledge about one of the most rapidly changing parts of the Earth’s global climate system. The conference aims to review the latest developments in this critical scientific domain as well as defining the coming challenges in cryosphere science where EO could play a major role.
We look forward to seeing you at ESRIN in November 2012.
