Baltic SEAL partners aim to travel far and wide presenting the latest project updates. If you spot us at an event, please feel free to introduce yourself. We welcome all discussions! If you would like to arrange a meeting please contact us.


Upcoming Events

12th Coastal Altimetry Workshop, Frascati, Italy, 4-7th February 2020

The workshop is a highlight meeting of the international community of scientists, engineers and managers working on developing applications of altimetry in the coastal zone. The 2020 meeting in Frascati, Italy, will feature studies using the latest missions (Sentinel-3A/B, CryoSat-2, HY-2, AltiKa and Jason-3) and the anticipation of synergies with the SWOT mission.

Dedicated sessions will cover Sea Level, Dynamic Topography, Currents, Winds and Waves, Sea State, Extreme Events, etc. , exploiting altimetry and other data for both real-time monitoring and long-term change studies. As in previous editions of the Workshop, requirements from the users are expected to stimulate the improvement of present and the shaping of future applications, spaceborne and in situ products & models, and consolidate the recurring requirements for a Global Coastal Altimetry Product Standard.

On the 4th February, there is a Coastal Altimetry Training day dedicated to Early Career Scientists, the next generation of coastal altimetry innovators. 

Please see event website for more information. 


13th Irish Earth Observation Symposium (IEOS19) Galway, Ireland, 5th-6th November, 2019

Earth observation in Ireland is growing rapidly growing in both academia and the private sector. The annual Irish Earth Observation Symposium provides an opportunity for those working to meet and present their work, sharing advances and highlighting national and international developments of interest to the community.

Please see event website for more information. 



Previous Events attended

by Baltic SEAL

ESA Advanced Ocean Synergy Training Course, November 4-8, Chania, Greece

As part of the EO Science For Society initiative, ESA organises an Advanced Ocean Synergy Training Course devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists in Ocean Remote sensing. In 2019, the challenging course is being hosted by the Technical University of Crete at the Venetian Arsenali building, Chania, Crete (Greece).

These training event is one of the best ways to connect with Europe’s up-and-coming leaders in Ocean Remote Sensing, with ESA-Baltic SEAL scientists facilitating synergy-creating groupwork activities.

Please see event website for more information. 


Ocean Surface Topography Science Team Meeting (OSTST), Chicago, 21-25th October 2019

The 2019 Ocean Surface Topography Meeting took place from 21-25 October 2019 and included a variety of science and technical splinters. These included special splinter on the Future of Altimetry (chaired by the Project Scientists), a splinter on Coastal Altimetry, and a splinter on the recently launched CFOSAT.  In anticipation of the launch of Jason-CS/Sentinel-6A approximately 1 year after this meeting, abstracts that support this upcoming mission were highly encouraged. Please see event website for more information. 


EuroGOOS Baltic Operational Oceanographic System Annual Meeting, Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research, 12-13th June 2019

The scientific workshop covered different topics related to monitoring, modelling, forecasting and service products, not only for operational oceanography but also for climate change adaptation and ecosystem-based management. Contributions on emerging research, e.g. Baltic Earth system, seamless monitoring, modelling and service capacity development, ocean observing integration between operational, environmental and research communities and using machine learning & deep learning in operational oceanography are also encouraged.


Living Planet Symposium, Milan, Italy,

13 – 17th May 2019

The Living Planet Symposium, regularly held every three years, is amongst the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world.

The 2019 edition focused on how Earth Observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth Observation landscape, which is also creating new opportunities for public and private sector interactions.
