We had to cancel/postpone our open town-hall meeting at the Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. ASSW is the premier Arctic science event organised by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and it runs every year. Being both a political and science based meeting it is the ideal platform to perform two-way dialogue with key stakeholders, and thus will reschedule for ASSW2021.
We also planned to run a community workshop at the 5th Arctic Observing summit (AOS) held during ASSW. This workshop would bring together nationally and internationally recognised Earth Observation and in-situ monitoring Arctic experts, with an aim to strengthen the calibration and validation of remotely sensed products, and forecast model data assimilation within Copernicus.
Our submitted abstract is available to view here, we hope to follow this up next year.
