GRACE Science Team Meeting 2012, DFG SPP 1257 Final Colloquium and Sea Level Workshop

17.-20. September, 2012

The Joint GRACE Science Team Meeting 2012 and Final Colloquium of the DFG Special Priority Program SPP1257 "Mass Transport and Mass Distribution in System Earth" took place at the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam between September 17 and 19, 2012. The meeting was organized by moderated sessions on specific themes, each consisting of invited and contributed presentations plus room for open-floor questions and answers. The format of the moderated sessions was in the responsibility of the respective conveners. The contributed abstracts were organized by subject, and delivered as either oral or poster presentations (see Meeting Program for further details). The meeting was opened with a brief Project Status session, which consisted of updates on the mission status, the flight segment technical status, and status and information on the latest reprocessed RL05 data release from the GRACE Science Data System.

The joint meeting was followed by a one day Sea Level Workshop on September 20 which was organized by the German National Academy of Sciences (Leopoldina) and the SPP1257. The program consisted of an introductionary talk "Why does sea level rise" by Maik Thomas (GFZ) on September 19 and nine invited talks on special topics (see Meeting Program details on the right).
