Joint EUMETSAT/ AMS Meteorological Satellite Conference in Vienna
Address key issues on weather, climate, oceans and the environment
EUMETSAT promotes international cooperation
BOSTON - As forecasting of high impact weather needs to meet higher expectations in our changing climate, EUMETSAT promotes international cooperation under the aegis of the WMO and is preparing to deploy one next-generation satellite per year in the period 2021-2025.
Joint CALMet XIII and EUMETCAL Conference 2019 hosted by EUMETSAT
EUMETSAT will be host to over 100 visitors this week as it open its doors to educators, trainers and managers from universities, research institutions and National Meteorological and Hydrological Services at its Darmstadt headquarters.
47th CGMS plenary session
Preceded by a series of working groups, the 47th Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS) plenary session will take place in Sochi, Russian Federation, on 23-24 May.
SI-TSBCOS workshop open for registration
Taking place at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in London on 9-11 September 2019, this international workshop will bring together experts from within the space industry to network and share information through presentations and technical discussions.

Also supported by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) , the Austrian Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) , and the European Meteorological Society (EMS) , the conference will address such key themes as climate monitoring , atmospheric composition , and satellite-based observations of the oceans . In addition, particular focus will be placed this year on water vapour, clouds and precipitation and the use of current and planned Earth observation systems to improve our understanding and adequately monitor trends and variability in the global hydrological system. These topics will also be covered in the extensive poster sessions throughout the week.
The opening session on the first day of the conference will be addressed by Alain Ratier, Director-General of EUMETSAT, Phil Ardanuy, AMS Meeting Co-Chair and Michael Staudinger, Director-General of ZAMG.
The conference will be attended by over 400 participants from 40 countries with a midweek transatlantic plenary session between the AMS and EMS discussing perspectives on satellites, models, and services in the future.
During the conference, the European Space Policy Institute will present the findings of a study on the economic benefits of the long-standing partnership between EUMETSAT and NOAA.
