2nd Annual EarthTemp Network Meeting
12-14 June 2013, Copenhagen
Data-sparse and extreme regions is the topic of the second year of the network. A focus will be the high-latitude domains, but the network remains inclusive and open to surface temperature researchers of all backgrounds who are interested in sharing knowledge and making connections across sub-discipline boundaries.
The workshop aims to facilitate collaborations between researchers and will have substantial dialogue and networking activities as well as invited overview presentations, panel discussions and the opportunity to present your work in poster sessions. Sessions planned for the programme are:
Overview presentations by invited speakers, followed by panel discussions on
- High-latitude surface temperatures: synthesis of datasets and what they tell us (Kevin Wood)
- Arctic Land Surface Temperature: Variability and Change (Claude Duguay)
- Sea Surface Temperature Changes in Polar Regions (Pierre Le Borgne)
- Sea-Ice Surface Temperature Measurements: Status and Utility (Jacob Hoyer)
Plenary discussion: Combined interpretation of Arctic temperatures Networking activities
Breakout discussion groups on
- Techniques for matching measurements and retrievals across different platforms
- Measurement of high-latitude Surface Temperature (SST): Why is it difficult, and how can we do it better?
- Satellite Land Surface Temperatures (LST) in high latitudes and high altitudes: How can we exploit them better?
- The EarthTemp White Paper: Turning recommendations into actions
Poster sessions & Poster discussions
There is no attendance fee.
The workshop is limited to 50 participants.
