Call for Abstracts: "3rd Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application Workshop"
Date: September 21, 2016 - September 22, 2016
Location: New York City, NY (Hotel TBD)
This workshop is a continuation of the first two soil moisture validation and application workshops held at the European Space Agency in Frascati, Italy, in 2013 and at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in 2014. The objective of this workshop series is to discuss and reconcile methodological advances in the validation and application of global satellite soil moisture data. The workshop is unique in that it brings together satellite soil moisture users and developers to focus on both the derivation and exploration of soil moisture data from both passive and active microwave satellite missions (SMAP, SMOS, ASCAT, AMSR-2, Sentinel-1, and other legacy missions).
The workshop is open to all. There are no fees for attendance but you must register. If you wish to make a presentation you must submit an abstract with your registration. Abstracts will be evaluated for inclusion as either oral or poster presentations.

Please note that this workshop will follow a SMAP Cal/Val Workshop September 19-20, 2016 that will be held in Manhattan and is open to all that are interested in SMAP. Information on that workshop can be found at: http://smap.jpl.nasa.gov/events/45/
