Polar regions have experienced the most rapid rates of warming in recent years and its expected impacts will exceed those forecasted for many other regions in the planet resulting in local, regional and globally significant consequences affecting natural ecosystems and human activities.
This workshop aims at assessing the latest advancement in the use of EO technology for Polar science, exploring the main challenges and opportunities for the coming decade and consulting with the community to contribute to define a common scientific agenda for the future.
- Reviewing the progress and latest results in polar science with major focus on EO- advances in the domain of polar research and applications
- Identifying the major Polar scientific challenges, observation gaps and research needs for the coming years
- Exploring effective mechanisms to promote networking and collaborative research in Polar sciences, bringing together different expertise, data and resources in a synergistic manner ensuring that the final result may be bigger than the sum of the parts
- Advancing towards the definition of major scientific priorities in polar research that may drive EC and ESA collaborative activities in the coming years
- Exploring the need for major multi-year coordinated inter-disciplinary experiments (involving advances in EO satellite observations, large in-situ data collection campaigns, advances in modelling.
