1st and 2nd September 2016; Sola City Conference Center, Tokyo, Japan; Hosted by JAXA
This workshop is a follow-up to the August 2015 Brisbane workshop on Non-Meteorological Applications for Next Generation Geostationary Satellites, which discussed opportunities and limitations of, as well as the resources and personnel needed to realize the potential of new generation geostationary imagers – making the most of Japan’s data streams, and Australia’s application capabilities. The initiative is primarily focused on (traditionally LEO) applications that benefit from the high temporal resolution of combined GEO and LEO observations. The purpose of this follow-up meeting is to take stock of the status and outlook for each of the products identified in 2015, and to chart the way forward for the initiative. Progress reports will be heard from each of the product teams, and the Domain Leads will identify challenges that need to be solved together, as well as opportunities that the team needs to seize. Front-running practical applications will be identified as ‘poster children’ for the Initiative.
