Information:

ESA is delighted to host a scientific workshop on dual-band altimetry (Ku/Ka/Laser, including possible tri-band studies) of the cryosphere.
The workshop is strictly focused on the use and comparison of dual-band or tri-band existing observations (from in situ, airborne, and satellite instruments) and the relevant theory to utilise dual-band altimetry for the study of the cryosphere, primarily sea ice and land ice.

Format
The workshop will be held online (Webex) over two half-days on 13 and 14 January (two 3.5-h sessions on land ice/sea ice, each with a short break in the middle,  in the time slot 14:00-17:30 GMT). Each session will have up to three keynote talks, followed by short talks from participants (for which a short abstract can be submitted via an e-mail by 7 January), and then ample time will be devoted to a structured discussion aimed at addressing the workshop objectives.
