What a brilliant 2 days! It was great to see you at The ESA-sponsored workshop which was open to anyone actively involved or interested in Sea Surface Temperature (SST) science, satellite validation and the use of in situ radiometers.  This year we had over 65 attendees both online and in person.    

Workshop aim:

  • bring together scientific and operational users and producers of in situ radiometer SST data to review progress, achievements and potential developments within the radiometer community.
  • present and discuss ship-borne satellite SST validation activities and results within the community,
  • explore and encourage data use,
  • explore instrument uses and designs,
  • to share the findings of the partners in the ISFRN service,
  • and to help develop future priorities.
