August 15-22: COSPAR2020 Session "SCIENCE AND APPLICATIONS ENABLED BY OCEANOGRAPHIC SATELLITE MEASUREMENTS" (Chairs: Tony Lee and David Antoine) The aim of this session is to foster scientific and operational utility of oceanographic satellite measurements from the past and current missions to study variability of the ocean and its relationships with changes in other elements of the Earth system, including atmosphere, cryosphere, and land. We invite contributions to all aspects of satellite oceanography (both physical and biological) associated with the use of satellite observations and derived estimates of various oceanographic parameters, including sea surface temperature, salinity, and height, ocean surface wind and current, ocean color, ocean mass, and sea ice. Potential topics include scientific analysis of these data and their assimilation into models. Synergistic use of satellite measurements of different oceanic parameters is particularly encouraged. Contributions to advance the science of planned missions in the future and the development of future mission concepts are also welcome.
