8-12 October 2018 @ Catania, Italy
The successful 2015 WMO Inter-comparison of Satellite-based Volcanic Ash Retrieval Algorithms activity broadly revealed that the accuracy of satellite-based volcanic ash products is a strong function of the retrieval methodology, satellite sensor capability, and scene complexity. In order to benchmark the various retrieval methodologies and satellite sensors as a function of the scene attributes (e.g. number of cloud layers, type of underlying surface, ash composition, etc.) and ascertain which methodologies and scientific practices are best suited for operational applications, the inter-comparison activity needs to be advanced further using the recommendations from the 2015 inter-comparison report as a guide.
In support of the 2018 WMO SCOPE-Nowcasting volcanic ash inter-comparison activity, a workshop, hosted by INGV, will be held 8-12 October 2018 in Catania, Italy. Read more about the workshop and objectives on their website.
26-29 November 2018 @ Salzburg, Austria
In the context of the EO Science for Society Programme Element, the European Space Agency is organising ATMOS-2018, a conference on the topical theme Atmosphere aimed at exploiting data from ESA and EO Missions for science and application development.
The purpose of this conference is to provide scientists and data users with the opportunity to present first-hand and up-to-date results from their ongoing research and application development activities by using data from past and current atmospheric instruments like Sentinel-5p, Aeolus, ERS-2, Envisat, Metop, and ESA Third Party Missions. Another aspect will be on discussing activities regarding future missions.

3-7 December 2018 @ Salzburg, Austria
SESAR Innovation Days 2018 will be hosted by the University of Salzburg and now in its eighth year, the SIDs have become a landmark event in the European aviation research calendar. The SIDs focus on exploratory research in the field of ATM. The event is not only a vehicle for the SESAR JU to share progress and disseminate results of its exploratory research programme but also for the wider research community to present their work.
As in previous years, the 2018 event will be shaped by scientific papers and presentations, which will be selected based on an open call for contributions, managed by the SESAR Engage network. The event will also feature a poster exhibition and a networking event, which will provide participants opportunities to learn about other interesting projects and to meet like-minded researchers.
Read more about the call for contributions on their website.
10-14 December 2018 @ Washington, D.C., USA
The AGU 2018 Fall Meeting will mark another dynamic year of discovery in Earth and space science, serve as the advent of AGU’s Centennial year, and provide a special opportunity to share our science with world leaders in Washington, D.C. As the largest Earth and space science gathering in the world, the Fall Meeting places you in the center of a global community of scientists drawn from myriad fields of study whose work protects the health and welfare of people worldwide, spurs innovation, and informs decisions that are critical to the sustainability of the Earth.
You will connect with leading thinkers, learn about pioneering research and emerging trends, and use your voice to help drive science’s positive impact on the world.
This year the Fall Meeting brings you to Washington, D.C., an international center of science and policy. You can highlight the wonder, value and immediacy of Earth and space science research and show that science is strong, global and essential. Connect with the D.C. area’s many scientific institutions and witness the ways that your colleagues are helping to inform solutions to the challenges faced by this region. Recharge by exploring the city’s bustling restaurant and music scene and enjoy the beauty and richness of its national monuments and museums.
Please visit their website for more information.
6-10 January 2019 @ Phoenix (AZ), USA
Over 40 separate conferences and symposia, covering topics from hydrology to history, satellites to societal applications, make up the core of the AMS Annual Meeting. One of interest for the EUNADICS-AV project is the Ninth Symposium on Lidar Atmospheric Applications. A joint session within this symposium covers for example Extreme Wildfire and Smoke Plumes – Causes, Impacts, Predictability (Joint between the 21st Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry, and the 10th Conference on Environment and Health).
This symposium is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the Committee on Laser Atmospheric Studies. Click here for more information on the Lidar symposium. Check the AMS website for more general information and other symposia and conferences.
