Postdoc position with Swansea University (Aerosol_cci)

The College of Science at Swansea University has a postdoctoral position in the field of satellite remote sensing related to climate.

The post will research global estimation of atmospheric aerosol and surface reflectance from satellite imagery. Research will focus on the recently launched ESA/Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellite mission.

The successful applicant will join an international team invovled with the ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI) aerosol project under the supervision of Prof. Peter North.

New data: Small Fire Database for sub-Saharan Africa

A new paper and accompanying data product (CCISFD11) from the Fire_cci team have published a paper featuring a Small Fire Database for Africa. This is the first continental-scale, high resolution Burned Area product and shows improvements on the current global product. 

CMUG to present at CMIP6 workshop, Barcelona 23-28 March

Results from the CCI’s Climate Modelling User Group on forecast errors in the seasonal prediction system EC-Earth will be presented at the CMIP6 Model Analysis Workshop (25-28 March, Barcelona).

The workshop is organized by the WCRP Working Group on Coupled Modelling CMIP Panel and European Commission Horizon 2020 project PRIMAVERA.


ESA has released an Intended Invitation to Tender (IITT) that concerns Climate Change Initiative-related Knowledge Exchange activities, aiming to provide Free, Open and Easy access to all ECV data products via user community protocols, and integrated with standard climate user community databases (e.g. Earth System Grid Federation).

New paper: Sea Ice Concentration Climate Data Records

Three global, gridded Sea Ice Concentration Climate Data Records (CDR) form the basis of a new paper published by the Sea Ice team in The Cryosphere (Lavergne et al.). Two of the CDRs were released during CCI Phase 2 (SICCI-25km and SICCI-50km), and one by the EUMETSAT OSI SAF project (OSI-450). The three CDRs share the same algorithms, processing chain, and data format. 

9th CCI Collocation 2019

The 9th CCI Collocation Meeting will take place from 26 - 28 March 2019 at St. Hugh's College, Oxford, UK with a meeting of  Science Leaders held in the afternoon of the 25th March. 

Climate Change Initiative at ESA Phi week

This week (12-16 November) ESA is live streaming Phi week, an event focusing on EO Open Science  and FutureEO - to review the latest developments in Open Science trends and kick-start innovative activities of the recently created Φ-department looking at FutureEO.

Members of CCI project teams and CCI datasets will feature during a week that will showcase world leadin EO science. 

Call for abstracts to Living Planet Symposium

The ESA Climate Office is convening a session at next year’s Living Planet Symposium in Milan from 13–17 May 2019 and encourages abstracts from Earth Observation and climate communities. 

New international study assesses 25 years of sea level rise 

Sea level rise, a primary indicator of global climate change with serious implications for coastal communities, is the focus of a recently published international study.

Through the World Climate Research Programme’s Grand Challenge on Regional Sea Level and Coastal Impacts, the major study assessed the various datasets used to estimate the contributing components of sea level rise since the start of high-accuracy satellite altimetry in 1993 – and included those produced by the Sea Level_cci project team. 

1st User Workshop of ESA’s CCI SNOW Project - 29/11/2018

The Snow_cci project held the 1st ESA CCI SNOW User Workshop on 29th November 2018, hosted by Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik, in Vienna, Austria. The workshop aimed to update and revise the user requirements by bringing together the Snow_cci project team, the Climate Research Group associated with Snow_cci, and potential users of Snow_cci data.
