Summary

The joint EUMETSAT – ROM SAF – C3S workshop brought together experts from different application areas and remote sensing, focusing on two main topics:

  1. The use of radio occultation data for climate applications, and
  2. The need for current information in climate applications and how this can be satisfied with space-based data.

The workshop was held from 8 till 10 December 2020 and was jointly organised by the EUMETSAT Secretariat, the EUMETSAT Satellite Application Facility on Radio Occultation Meteorology (ROM SAF), and the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) Project on Satellite ECVs - Atmospheric Physics (C3S_312b_Lot1).

The workshop gathered about 50 invited experts in order to facilitate interactive participation. The workshop consisted of a mixture of keynote presentations and discussion groups working on specific questions supporting the workshop aims. The outcomes are summarised in the workshop reports.

Organising Committee: Jörg Schulz (EUMETSAT), Kent Lauritsen (DMI, ROM SAF), Hans Gleisner (DMI, ROM SAF), Anna Christina Mikalsen (DWD, C3S), and Rainer Hollman (DWD, C3S)
