Earth Observation and Cryosphere Science: The Way Forward.
To advance our knowledge of the potential offered by earth observation technology to answer some of the major open questions in cryospheric science, the Earth Observation for Cryosphere Science Conference was organised jointly by the European Space Agency (ESA), the Climate and Cryosphere project (CliC) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and the European Geosciences Union (EGU) and hosted at the ESRIN facilities of ESA, in Frascati, Italy in November 2012. The meeting involved more than 200 scientists over 30 countries and addressed the latest advances and scientific developments in the use of earth observation technology to observe, monitor and predict the different components and processes governing the cryosphere and reviewed the related applications. The meeting report: Earth Observation and Cryosphere Science: The Way Forward, summarises the main results of the discussions and provides guidance for future research and the development of activities in this scientific area.
