Climate Data Records from Satellites: A Metrological Approach

MOOC by National Physical Laboratory (NPL) · Free · Current

This one-day e-learning course provides a structured approach to metrology to support fundamental climate data products from satellites. The course provides a step-by-step guide to considering the uncertainties and error correlation structures associated with satellite Earth observation data. The focus is on the level 1 products of passive radiometric sensors, though the core principles also apply to active sensors and to level 2 and higher-level products generated from a metrologically-rigorous level 1 product

Zero Gravity Flight

Workshop by Space Training Academy · POA · Current

Would you like to experience for yourself what it is like to float weightlessly like an astronaut? You can do this on a "zero-gravity flight" or "parabolic flight". Astronauts are weightless in space. To prepare themselves on Earth for that weightlessness, they regularly undertake parabolic flights. The Space Training Academy organizes parabolic flights, including preparation.

ESA Scout HydroGNSS (Recorded Content)

Seminar by SSTL · Free · Current

We are holding an online workshop to introduce the HydroGNSS mission, the science behind the retrievals, the products anticipated at Data Levels 2 and 2, their relationship to Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) and the plans for calibration and validation of the results. The workshop will discuss lessons learnt from previous reflectometry missions, and how future HydroGNSS products could be accommodated alongside other data into climate and meteorological models to improve hydrological and climate knowledge. This workshop is aimed at potential users of HydroGNSS measurements for climate and meteorological models, researchers working in complementary EO missions, and those with an interest in GNSS reflectometry as a future Earth observation technique sustainable through the use of small satellite constellations.
