EARSeL snow and ice workshop - 3.-5.Feb.2020 - Bern Switzerland

Stefan Wunderle-2
Dear all,

You are cordially invited to attend the 9th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL), which will be held at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland, from 03 - 05 February 2020.

The theme of the 2020 workshop is: Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere: Monitor what is vanishing

The cryosphere of the Earth is undergoing dramatic changes. Glaciers are retreating at accelerated rate and snow cover distribution and duration is changing with many significant side-effects (run-off, permafrost, albedo, etc.). Remote Sensing can provide the required data to study these changes of the cryosphere.
The announced workshop will focus on the latest developments in remote sensing of land ice and snow. Presentations are encouraged on all fields of research and applications with the focus on snow and ice as proxy for a changing cryosphere, methods for retrieving cryospheric parameters from various types of remote sensing data, theoretical basis of inversion methods and their application, state of the art of retrieval algorithms, data assimilation of remote sensing data and in situ observations in process models, current and planned sensors for snow and ice. Half of a day will be dedicated to the activities from ESA (CCI+) and EUMETSAT.

Preliminary session topics:

  • Glaciers and Ice Caps
  • Snow cover (regional to global scale)
  • Snow hydrology
  • Snow on sea ice and glaciers
  • Albedo of the cryosphere
  • Cryosphere and climate
  • Cryospheric modelling and data assimilation
  • New technologies (sensors/methods)
  • ESA CCI+ snow
  • EUMETSAT operational services

July 11, 2019:                    Call for papers
October 1, 2019:                Due date for abstracts
November 15, 2019:          Notification of abstract acceptance
December 15, 2019:          Preliminary program

Further information are available at http://www.earsel.org/SIG/Snow-Ice/workshop/call.php.
Please, distribute the call in you network.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Bern!

Kind regards,
