The Copernicus Sentinel Atlantic Meridional Transect Fiducial Reference Measurements workshop will serve as a forum for discussing the performance of Sentinel -1, -2 and -3 at retrieving ocean colour, sea surface temperature in the open ocean and coastal environments. It will identify potential strategies for the validation of Sentinel missions in the future. The workshop will address four main themes:
*Please book your accommodation after registration. A special rate for the hotel hosting the workshop is available for £109 single / £119 twin for bed and breakfast per night . Please quote JIPLYMOU1906 when booking to receive this discount.*
Registration closes 31st May 2017, however, if you wish to submit an abstract the deadline for this is the 28th February 2017.
The event fee for standard delegates is £100 which covers the cost of catering and room hire.
Abstracts for an oral presentation have now closed (if you are still very keen to present please contact Jenny Lockett).
Poster abstracts are still welcome.
Abstracts must be a maximum of 300 words.
You can upload your abstract during registration or email it to Jenny Lockett, Project Manager (email@example.com).
The event fee for trade delegates is £150 which covers the cost of catering and room hire as well as a space for a stand at the event.
