Ocean Remote Sensing Synergy summer school, June 30 to July 4, Telecom Bretagne, Plouzané, France

Satellite remote sensing has emerged as an essential and necessary observing system to acquire global information about the state of the ocean. Complemented with in situ observing networks, ultimate goals are to make accurate estimates of selected key sets of geophysical variables, with the intention of either making operational predictions across time and spatial boundaries, or advancing fundamental knowledge through development of empirical relationships and theoretical models.

Challenges appear as unlimited as the variety of upper ocean dynamics and boundary layer meteorological conditions with their broad range of spatial and temporal scales across the globe. To face these challenges, efforts must take place to more consistently enforce an ever-increasing quality, quantity, duration and integration of ocean observations. All these efforts are thus critically calling for improved methodologies to better structure, explore and exploit the synergies among this wealth of information.

This efforts will be addressed during a summer school to take place from June 30 to July 4, 2014 at  Telecom Bretagne, Plouzané, France. For more information, please refer to the summer school web site.
