2019 Joint Satellite Conference

 The American Meteorological Society

The event is co-organized by the AMS Committee on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography, and Climatology, EUMETSAT and NOAA

Mon, Sep 30 - Fri, Oct 4 2019

This conference merges up to three unique satellite conferences into one major event. It has been the practice of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography, and Climatology (SatMetOC) Committee (organizers of the 23rd AMS Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology Conference) and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT; organizers of the 2019 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference) to hold joint conferences approximately every six years, most recently in Vienna (2013), and previously in Amsterdam (2007) and Paris (1998).

Major areas of interest: 
  1. New Satellite Systems and Instrumentation—illustrating the potential of new satellite systems to improve weather, climate, and other environmental data products; enhance user application and services, and contribute to blended and fused satellite datasets; future observing system architectures, flight projects, and international partnerships; and new emerging approaches for space-based observations, concepts, and their practical application to operational Earth observations

  2. Status of Satellite Products and Data Access—including how satellite data are being used to advance our understanding of fundamental weather and climate processes in the atmosphere, oceans, land surface, and cryosphere

  3. Oceanography and Marine Meteorology—including research and operational satellite data applications for ocean, coastal, and air-sea interaction monitoring and forecasting

  4. Significance of Satellite Data for monitoring the Polar Regions—noting the rapidly-changing polar environment in a changing climate, and recognizing the important coupling of the cryosphere with the biosphere, oceans, atmosphere, and land in the Earth system

  5. Impact of Satellite Data on Nowcasting and Short Range Weather Forecasting—including the development of innovative methods of combining and assimilating satellite observations of the atmosphere, ocean/water, and land to improve forecast skill; and nowcasting and high-resolution numerical weather prediction

  6. Quantifying Impact of Weather Extremes in a Changing Climate—including heat waves, droughts, heavy precipitation events, agriculture and ecosystems, and human health and well-being

  7. Training and User Preparation—including satellite testbeds and proving grounds, system readiness exercises, lessons learned and best practices, workshops, case studies, and self-paced learning resources

  8. Air Quality and Atmospheric Composition—including satellite-based observations to depict processes that determine air pollution and trace/greenhouse gas distributions and estimation of global air pollution impacts

Call for papers on the improved use of satellite data for analyzing and predicting the weather, ocean/coastal/water regimes, climate, and the environment.
