NextGEOSS: Next Generation GEOSS for Innovation Business

The NextGEOSS project will implement a federated access for Earth Observation data, including user friendly tools for data mining, discovery, access and exploitation.

The NextGEOSS project will implement a federated data hub for access and exploitation of Earth Observation data, including user-friendly tools for data mining, discovery, access and exploitation. This data hub will be supported by a strong commitment to the engagement of Earth Observation and related communities, with the view of supporting the creation of innovative and business oriented applications. NextGEOSS engages main providers of Earth Observation data, including Copernicus Collaborative Ground Segments and Core Services.

SWARP User Workshop 28th - 29th Sept.

NERSC is hosting a two-days training workshop in the framework of the European SWARP project, on waves and ice forecasting in the Marginal Ice Zone.

https://swarp.nersc.no

Deadline for registration: Friday 16th Sept.

The workshop is free and open to current and future users of operational sea ice and wave forecast services with a particular interest in navigation close to the ice edge or into the Marginal Ice Zone.

OSITAC WITS: Copernicus OSITAC Wind, Sea Ice and Temperature at the Sea Surface Service

WITS will provide operational (Level 3 and 4) observational multi-mission data products derived from upstream satellite earth observation (L2) data. These data products include important sea surface temperature (SST), sea ice and wind variables.

The Ocean and Sea Ice Thematic Assembly Centre (OSI TAC) as an integrated part of the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMS) is operated by a consortium comprised of the partners that successfully delivered the OSI TAC service in the MyOcean, MyOcean2 and MyOceanFollow-On projects. The partnership has world-leading expertise in delivering operational services for the marine users, as well as in the associated product and system development.

IceMotion: High resolution sea-ice motion from Synthetical Aperture Radar using pattern tracking and Doppler shift

IceMotion will provide new SAR-derived sea ice motion data based on combined use of
feature tracking and Doppler shift data for research and monitoring in ice-covered Polar seas.

Sea-ice motion is an essential variable to observe from EO data, because it strongly influences the distribution of sea-ice on different spatial and temporal scales. Ice drift causes advection of ice from one region to another and export of ice from the Arctic Ocean to the sub-Arctic seas. The proposal will exploit Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from Sentinel-1and Radarsat-2 for sea ice research and prepare for operational use of Sentinel-1 data. The main objective of IceMotion is to develop new SAR-derived sea ice motion data with high resolution (ca.

SPICES: Space-borne observations for detecting and forecasting sea ice cover extremes

SPICES will develop new and innovative sea ice products that can be used as indicators of climate change in the polar ocean, as well as for securing operations in ice-infested waters.

The main objective of SPICES project is to develop new methods to retrieve sea ice parameters from existing (and imminent) satellite sensors to provide enhanced products for polar operators and prediction systems, specifically addressing extreme and unexpected conditions. To meet this challenge, we have formed a consortium comprised of the best European researchers in sea ice remote sensing, operational sea-ice modelling, seasonal forecasting, and climate research.

ArcticSIV: Arctic sea ice variability: a comprehensive study using satellite and in-situ observations

The project will improve the quantification of Arctic sea ice variability, trends and uncertainties over the last 3 decades using passive microwave data from satellites

For the first time 11 passive microwave sea ice algorithms will be compared and validated for Arctic sea ice concentration using brightness temperature data from SMMR, SSM/I since 1978 and recent AMSR-E and SMOS data. Validation will be done by SAR, Scatterometer and optical and infrared satellite data such as AVHRR and Landsat. Sea ice algorithms for thin and thick ice will be implemented using passive microwave, radar and laser altimeters, optical and infrared satellite data and validated by using in-situ observations.

CISAR: CryoSat land and sea ice studies in the Arctic

The project will exploit data from CryoSat-2 and RADARSAT-2 for  sea ice studies in the Arctic.

CISAR will develope methodology for use of CryoSat-2 radar altimeter data in combination with RADARSAT-2 SAR data in Arctic land and sea ice studies and education of young scientists.
