The U.S. and International Earth Observation from Space Program of Record

The JPL Center for Climate Sciences (CCS) and Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) invite you to attend a virtual mini-symposium on:

The U.S. and International Earth Observation from Space Program of Record

Wednesday, June 29th, 2022
9:00AM-12:00 noon PDT
Link to virtual event available via email to ichatila@caltech.edu by 4PM on June 28

This virtual mini-symposium will consist of four invited presentations of 30 minutes each, followed by moderated discussion, as follows:

  • NASA Earth Science Program of Record (Waleed Abdalati)
  • NOAA/NESDIS Program of Record (Michael Bonadonna)
  • USGS Program of Record (Tim Stryker)
  • International Program of Record (Mark Dowell, Jeff Privette, Wenying Su, Jörg Schulz)
  • Moderated Discussion (Stacey Boland)

This mini-symposium serves to provide valuable background material for the upcoming KISS Study on "Developing a Continuity Framework for Satellite Observations of Climate" https://kiss.caltech.edu/workshops/ClimateFramework/ClimateFramework.html. The overall goal of this study program is to help accelerate discussions and plans for a greater and more impactful U.S. contribution to the global climate observing system.

This event leverages and contributes to the JPL CCS series of mini-symposia focused on "The Essential Role of Long-term Satellite Records for Climate Science and Monitoring." The objectives of this series are:

  1. to raise the visibility of the remarkable role and importance of the long-term satellite climate records currently in existence;
  2. to highlight critical accomplishments in selected areas; and
  3. to review challenges in sustaining a climate monitoring system.
