eSurge at the Living Planet Symposium, Edinburgh

In just a few days the week-long ESA Living Planet Symposium will kick off in Edinburgh, UK. 

This event is ESA's main earth observation conference, held every 3 years. Organised and hosted by ESA with the support of the UK Space Agency, the symposium will bring together scientists and users from across the globe. Approximately 1700 particpants are expected to attend. Results from ESA's Earth observation missions will be presented, as well as missions in development. Read more on the ESA website.

As an ESA-funded project, eSurge will be in attendance, as will our sister project eSurge Venice. Below we list the presentations and posters relevant to eSurge and eSurge Venice, including an overview presentation of eSurge on Tuesday afternoon. If you have any questions on eSurge and its outputs, then please feel free to come and discuss with us. 

If you didn't register already, you can do so via the symposium website.

We hope to see and talk to many of you in Scotland.
