4th SWARM Data Quality Workshop

4th SWARM Data Quality Workshop

Dec 2nd-5th 2014|Potsdam: During the first week of December GFZ hosts the 4th SWARM Data Quality Workshop. This will be the second international SWARM Meeting that takes place at GFZ.

About 100 scientists and engineers from 14 countries are expected to participate. The topic of the conference is the analysis of data produced by SWARM, a satellite trio launched in November last year. Another venue, besides GFZ, is the Wissenschaftsetage at Bildungsforum in Potsdam.

The complementary set of three SWARM satellites provides essential datasets to explore the Earth's geomagnetic and gravity fields, and the upper atmosphere. SWARM was launched one year ago, first datasets were released in May 2014. First scientific results were presented at ESA’s 3rd SWARM Science Meeting, June 19/20th in Copenhagen. On the national level the DFG Priority Programme ”DynamicEarth” has started recently, which focusses on the data analysis of potential field satellite missions, particularly on data obtained by the SWARM mission.
