As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) is pleased to announce the first advanced training course in Earth Observation of the Cryosphere, which will be hosted at the University of Leeds (UK), from 12 to 16 September 2016. Lead by members of the CCI Antarctic Ice Sheet project, the course will cover all aspects of cryosphere remote sensing.

6th CCI Collocation Meeting

The 6th Collocation meeting took place in ESRIN, Italy, from the 29th September - 1st October 2015. The focus for this meeting was on collating the achievements of the programme so far, which included reviewing which ECV data products will be ready to be transferred to an operational activity outside the CCI, when the programme ends. Discussions throughout the meeting helped to consolidate CCI-wide harmonisation and support on a number of issues important across the projects. The final day of the meeting was dedicated to looking ahead to what might be included in a 'CCI+' style programme, with presentations from potential new ECVs. The talks from the meeting are available below.

New series of Sensor Performance, Products and Algorithms for AATSR

A new series of Sensor Performance, Products and Algorithms (SPPA) web pages have been developed for Earth Explorer and Third Party Missions. For AATSR, these include detailed End of Mission (EOM) Documents including Performance and Event Reports, which may be useful for AATSR users. Please use the links below for access to the specific pages.

Public review of GCOS 2015 Status Report

Public review of GCOS 2015 Status Report

The 2015 GCOS Status Report, Status of the Global Observing System, is now open for public review. The review started on Friday, 24 July 201,5 and ends on Monday, 7 September 2015, although we encourage comments before the end of August if possible to give time for them all to be adequately considered. So we can collate all the comments and track how they are dealt with, all comments MUST be sent on the form available below.

Comments should be sent to gcosreview@wmo.int.

Global Climate Observation: the road to the future 2-4 March 2016, Amsterdam

Climate observations are essential for understanding the complexities of the global climate system, indeed virtually all breakthroughs that have been made in understanding climate have come from observations. This is why it is crucial to make further progress towards achieving a fully implemented, sustainable, global observing system for climate.

Call for CCI Postdoctoral Positions

Call for CCI Postdoctoral Positions

The second Call for Research Proposals of the Living Planet Fellowship under the Climate Change Initiative (CCI) is now open.

The main objective of this initiative is to provide support to young researchers who have a doctoral degree and who would like to initiate a scientific career in the context of Earth Observation, Earth science and climate research. Candidate researchers shall submit research proposals addressing either or both of the following themes:

Living Planet Symposium 2016

ESA's Earth Observation conference - the Living Planet Symposium - is to be held from 9 - 13 May 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic. It will provide an opportunity to discuss the progress made in all branches of Earth observation and present the relevance of ESA's EO Programme to societal challenges, science and economy.

CCI Open Data Portal

CCI Open Data Portal - take our survey

What do you need from an Open Data Portal, delivering Essential Climate Variables from satellite data? Please take our survey so we can provide you with the best access to data and tools. 

This survey forms part of a larger activity whose objective is to develop an Open Data Portal to provide a central point of harmonised access to mature Essential Climate Variable (ECV) datasets produced as part of ESA's Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme.

Online Course - Climate from Space

Free online course: Monitoring climate from space

The European Space Agency have teamed up with Future Learn to put together a five week course on Monitoring Climate from Space. The course brings together leading experts and scientists from ESA and key European research centres, to explore the science that underpins Earth observation. Members of the Climate Change Initiative teams are involved to help bring the research done within the CCI programme to a wider audience.

The course looks at recent and current satellite missions that are providing an archive of essential data; and find out how this data is used in local and international policy and planning.

The course starts on the 8th June; to watch the trailer and register to take part, go to the Future Learn website
