ISFRN Workshop, 17 - 18 September 2020


The second ISFRN Workshop took place on online on the 17 - 18 September 2020. Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the ESA-sponsored workshop was held virtually over two days, at different times of the day to ensure that participants from around the globe could attend. The workshop consisted of online presentations and a poster, designed to review progress, results and advances in deployments, calibration and validation as well as to look at how the data from shipborne radiometers are used in practice. The workshop consisted of the following sessions spread over two days:

  • Session 1: Experiences of Radiometer Operators

  • Session 2: Validation of Satellite SST Measurements

  • Session 3: SST Data in Practice

  • Session 4: The ISFRN Network

  • Session 5: Radiometer Performance and Uncertainties

The workshop brought together scientific and operational users and producers of in situ radiometer SST data to review progress, achievements and potential developments within the radiometer community.
