Following successful ESA DUE GlobTemperature User Consultation Meetings (UCMs), a 5th consultation meeting has linked-up with the H2020 EUSTACE Project to deliver a joint workshop for the satellite and air surface temperature communities to share experiences and review developments with a particular focus on climate requirements. The aim of the EUSTACE Project is to give publicly available daily estimates of surface air temperature since 1850 across the globe for the first time by combining surface and satellite data using novel statistical techniques.

By bringing the satellite and modelling communities together the meeting aims to cultivate communication between users and data providers, providing a forum to develop strategies and collaborations to maximise the uses of surface temperature data for the long term.

The meeting is open to all who are interested in attending, and there will be no registration fee.
The registration site will open at the end of this month when a further announcement will be made.
We would like to encourage you to start thinking about abstracts for oral and poster presentations as there will be plenty of opportunities at the meeting to showcase your research.

As with previous GlobTemperature UCMs a limited amount of travel support is available. If you will require subsidy of travel and/or subsistence in order to participate, please complete the application form from the link on the left.

The meeting will include a session for the 6th General Meeting of the International LST and Emissivity Working Group (ILSTE).
With LST now incorporated into the 2016 GCOS Implementation Plan this session will assess User Requirements for climate, assess the provision of data products, explore and communicate understanding on validation and uncertainties, and build towards cross-ECV activities.
