The International Earth Surface Working Group (IESWG) was established to help gather requirements specific to surface observations and to enhance both our understanding and ability to monitor the components of the Earth system including land, vegetation, snow, ice, and coastal and open waters. The IESWG plenary sessions will be focused on preparing our recommendations and input to the CGMS WGII.
Topics of particular focus include Earth Observations research & operational applications involving:
- Snow, ice, and cryosphere-atmosphere interactions
- Vegetation and land-atmosphere fluxes
- Soil moisture, river-discharge, and water cycle
Important dates: Registration by 30 June 2023, please fill out the registration form at https://forms.gle/mVi4YjN9k4hzChHs7 .
The International Earth Surface Working Group (IESWG) will be a hybrid meeting with 2 full days on 26-27 September 2023, and the final day the 28 September for additional plenary, actions and outcomes.
The meeting will convene 0900-1700 UTC for the first two sessions, and as needed for the final day. We will continue to offer poster sessions, so please indicate if you would prefer talks / posters contributions.
