Participation in the Climate Symposium 2014


The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT, Germany), together with the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center, have presented one study in the Climate Symposium 2014 on “Research and Earth Observations from Space: Climate Information for Decision Making”, which was held in Darmstadt (Germany) from 13 to 17 October 2014.
The main goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for discussing the current state of climate science and climate observations in order to evaluate recent achievements, ascertain critical objectives to be achieved with satellite-based climate information, and identify gaps in the current space-based climate observing system. A major topic that will be discussed is the proposed Architecture for sustained Climate Monitoring from Space that has been developed under the auspices of the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS), the Coordination Group of Meteorological Satellites (CGMS) and WMO. Beyond the monitoring of the current state of the Climate System, the conference will also consider how Earth observation contributes to future developments in climate prediction and climate change projection.
The following scientific contribution was shown:
M. Schneider, S. Barthlott, E. Christner, Y. González, A. Wiegele, C. Dyroff, T. Blumenstock, O. E. García, F. Hase, U. Raffalski, E. Sepúlveda, Feasibility and usefulness of tropospheric water vapourisotoplogue ratio remote sensing products.
