3rd Swarm science meeting.

Swarm Science Meeting

3rd International Swarm Science Meeting and topical Cal/Val team workshop in Copenhagen (16th – 20th June, 2014).
The ESA Earth Observation Swarm satellite mission, a constellation of three satellites to measure the Earth’s magnetic field, was launched on November 22, 2013.

The mission will deliver observations that provide new insight into the Earth system by improving our understanding of the Earth’s interior as well as the near Earth electro-magnetic environment important for space weather effects. The unprecedented high-accuracy and high spatial resolution measurements of the strength, direction and time variations of the magnetic field, complemented by precise navigation, accelerometer and electric field measurements, will provide the required observations to model the various sources of the geomagnetic field and the gravity field.

During the summer of 2014 DTU Space will host the 3rd International Swarm Science Meeting, sponsored by the European Space Agency, ESA. This meeting will take place at the IDA Conference Centre in Copenhagen on June 19th to 20th 2014 and is open to the science community at large. A dedicated Swarm Cal/Val workshop will be held in Copenhagen on June 16th to 18th back-to-back to the open Swarm Science Meeting.

Information about the programme, the venue (same as used for the 4th Ørsted International Science Team Meeting in 2002), abstract submission and more is found at the ESA Third Swarm Science Meeting homepage, see immediately below.
