Dear All, 

We would like to invite you to the 2nd SMOS SCIENCE CONFERENCE (25-29 May 2015) and the SMOS TRAINING COURSE (18-22 May 2015) which will take place at ESA-ESAC, near Madrid (Spain). 

For further information on both events please see www.smos2015.info. The deadline for submission of abstracts for the SMOS science conference and applications for the SMOS training course is 16 January 2015. 

The 2nd SMOS Science Conference will be jointly organised by ESA, CNES and SMOS-MODE.
By 2015, ESA’s SMOS mission will have been in orbit for more than five years, providing a continuous stream of high quality data products. Being ESA’s water cycle mission, SMOS observations have been used by rather distinct science communities addressing oceanography, land surface hydrology, and meteorology over a wide range of applications. The focus of this conference will deviate from previous events in that the emphasis will be on applications of SMOS data, including operational services, the development of novel data products, the synergistic use of SMOS data with other data sources and the potential of SMOS data for the generation of long-term data sets. The workshop will also cover common themes such as the quality of the Level 1 data products and calibration and validation activities. 
The 2nd SMOS Science Conference will be preceded by a SMOS Training Course on 18-22 May 2015, organised by CESBIO and held as well at the ESA-ESAC premises near Madrid. The course will provide an opportunity to learn how to work with level 1 (brightness temperature) and level 2 (soil moisture and ocean salinity) data provided by the SMOS mission.
The deadline for applications is 16 January. To submit your applications please go to www.smos2015.info --> Training Course and use the link on the bottom of the page.
