Workshop on Novel Mission Concepts for Snow and Cryosphere Research


- The session chairs and scientific committee provided input to compile this workshop report and summery
On 16 - 17 September 2014, the “Workshop on Novel Mission Concepts for Snow and Cryosphere Research” was held at ESA/ESTEC, The Netherlands.

The goal of the workshop was to invite experts and specialists in the field and initiate discussions about

  1. recent related field campaign based on ground, airborne and satellite observations, and
  2. provide a state-of-the-art overview of techniques to observe snow properties and other cryosphere disciplines.

The first session was comprised of key notes from M Borgeaud (ESA), M Drinkwater (ESA), E Kim (NASA), and J Pulliainen (FMI). The workshop included dedicated discussion slots to collect the opinion of the community about emerging issues. The session chairs collected the discussion items and key scientific questions that were raised during the workshop. Recommendations and seed questions (collected before the workshop) are also included in this report.

The workshop was organized by Michael Kern (ESA) and Dirk Schüttemeyer (ESA) together with a scientific committee and an ESA organising committee. This report is based on inputs from the session chairs and the scientific committee. The workshop was supported by the Support To Science Element (STSE) programme line, which is a programmatic component of the Earth Observation Envelope Programme (EOEP).

The workshop attracted in total 56 registered participants from 15 different countries.

The atmosphere-ocean boundary layer in which sea ice resides includes many complex processes that require a more realistic treatment in GCMs, particularly as models move toward full earth system descriptions. The primary purpose of the workshop was to define and discuss such coupled processes...
