The 2018 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference will take place in Tallinn, Estonia, from 17 to 21 September 2018. EUMETSAT will be joined in the organisation and hosting of the event by the Estonian Environment Agency, the national provider for weather and climate services in Estonia.
The conference date is very fitting as it coincides with the celebration of the Centenary of the Republic of Estonia.
EUMETSAT has organised a meteorological satellite conference every year for over thirty years. During that time, the conference has become a key annual event for the meteorological and scientific communities where participants from around the world can meet to share their experience and knowledge during plenary, poster and workshop sessions.
The 2018 conference will discuss such topics as preparing for MTG and EPS-SG, atmospheric chemistry monitoring and applications, and climate and ocean monitoring. The conference location also lends itself to discussions on the topics of observations for the Baltic Basin, as well as Arctic monitoring and applications.
Further conference topics will incorporate developments in current and future meteorological satellite programmes, data access and nowcasting and high-resolution NWP.
Abstract submission: 1 December 2017 – 31 January 2018.
