The World Soils 2019 user consultation meeting will take place from 02 – 03 July 2019 at ESA ESRIN, Frascati, Italy.

The workshop aims at bringing together stakeholders from different policy and user domains with remote sensing experts to discuss the requirement of a Soil Monitoring System utilizing space-based EO data with in-situ data and modeling. The focus will be on the potential use of existing and future planned space-based EO systems including data gaps and research issues of priority. The outcome of the workshop will be used to develop a roadmap of relevant research and demonstration activities supporting the development and implementation of a space-based EO Soil Monitoring System.

We would kindly like to invite you to submit your abstracts by using the on-line abstract submission page, available on our website;
