ESA CCI water vapour 2nd User workshop

This is the second user workshop of the ESA Water Vapor Climate Change Initiative.

Challenges around atmospheric water vapour

The Water Vapour Climate Change Initiative (WV_cci), is a project of the European Space Agency (ESA) with the overall goal to generate climate data records (CDRs) of atmospheric water vapour for use in climate applications. The project develops, validates, and releases quality-controlled, long-term CDRs of total column water vapour (TCWV) and water vapour profile across troposphere and stratosphere (2D, 3D).

The aim of the workshop is to bring together the broader water vapour community, including those interested in the generation of water vapour CDRs and data users (such as climate modellers and NWP researchers) in order to discuss the most recent scientific applications and challenges in processing and using water vapour CDRs.

The workshop will be carried out in a hybrid mode, at FZ Jülich and online. Different sessions addressing the topics above will be defined according to the submitted abstracts. Oral presentations as well as posters are accepted. The posters will be made available on a dedicated online portal. Invited presentations will provide elements of discussion for the workshop: gaps in knowledge, needs for Earth Observations, etc.

Call for abstracts and registration:
You are kindly invited to submit your abstract(s) before mid June. Please visit the workshop website for further details.
