The ESA-sponsored 2-day workshop and celebration meal is open to anyone actively involved and/or interested in Sea Surface Temperature (SST) science, satellite validation and the use of in situ radiometers. Pre-registration is required. To join us in person or online, register here.

The Workshop aims to:

  • 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.
