The Copernicus Sentinel Atlantic Meridional Transect Fiducial Reference Measurements workshop will serve as a forum for discussing the performance of Sentinel -1, -2 and -3 at retrieving ocean colour, sea surface temperature in the open ocean and coastal environments. It will identify potential strategies for the validation of Sentinel missions in the future. The workshop will address four main themes:

  1. Fiducial Reference Measurement methods and protocols
  2. Ocean Colour validation 
  3. Sea Surface Temperature validation 
  4. Validation of upper ocean dynamics

Presentations are welcomed from participants, please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words and indicate whether you wish to present a talk or poster.

Papers from the workshop will be published in a remote sensing journal special issue (submitted by September 2017).
