Future Focus Workshop: Wildfires

EUMETSAT is organising a user workshop on Future Focus – Wildfires. Building on the EUMETSAT user days and previous workshops addressing the usage of Earth Observations for wildfire monitoring, the workshop will address:
– the current status and advances in monitoring wildfires from space
– the role of satellite data in emission estimates
– the impact of fires on the wider ecosystems and climate.

Bringing together science experts, data providers, application experts and end users, Future Focus: Wildfires will address the full range cycle of wildfire monitoring and include the full value chain from data to end user. It will progress on the following objectives:
– Inform on existing and upcoming EO data relevant for wildfire monitoring (observations and modelling)
– Present and discuss initiatives related to EO products, user networks, data access, knowledge sharing and services
– Discuss needs and priorities on existing and upcoming products from next-generation satellites within operational value chains
– Enhance engagement with a wide community of users, value adders and service providers to better identify their needs.
