SMOS-päivä TKK:lla keskiviikkona 21.10.2009

Euroopan Avaruusjärjestön SMOS-satelliitti (Soil Moisture Ocean Salinity) on määrä laukaista 2.11.2009. Satelliitin hyötykuormana on uutta tekniikkaa edustava interferometrinen mikroaaltoradiometri, joka toimii L-alueella (1,4 GHz) ja tuottaa globaalia tietoa maankosteudesta ja merten suolapitoisuudesta. Satelliitin järjestelmien suunnitteluun, rakentamiseen ja testaukseen ovat osallistuneet Suomesta Teknillinen korkeakoulu, DA-Design Oy ja Modulight Oy. SMOS-havaintojen käyttöä tutkivat yhteisessä projektissa Teknillinen korkeakoulu, Ilmatieteen laitos ja Suomen ympäristökeskus.

Call for Papers: Special Issue on “Trends in service chaining for GEOSS themes” International Journal of Applied Geospatial Research (IJAGR)

The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) is an international initiative that provides decision-support tools and operational access to Earth observation data and geospatial content, serving a wide variety of users. GEOSS will proactively link together existing and planned observation systems around the world and support the development of new systems where gaps currently exist, promoting also common technical standards in a manner that data from thousands of different instruments can be combined into coherent data sets.
