The 7th Asia-Oceania/2nd AMS-Asia/ 2nd KMA Meteorological Satellite Users’ Conference will be held from 21~28 October 2016, Songdo City, Incheon, Korea.

Background

The Asia and Oceania regions are frequently affected by severe natural phenomena such as tropical cyclones, torrential monsoons, volcanic eruptions, yellow sand storms, floods, sea ice and wildfires. The importance of monitoring the climate and the environment is also increasing, which has prompted enhanced global interest in the field. In this area, meteorological and earth observation satellites provide frequent and extensive observational information for use in disaster prevention and climate monitoring/diagnostics, and are indispensable in today's world.

Since the first launch of Japan’s meteorological satellites over Asia and Oceania in 1977, now Korea, China, Europe, India, Japan, the Russian Federation and the United States all operational meteorological and climate monitoring satellites over Asia and Oceania, as part of the Global Observing System (GOS) promoted by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which contributes to the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) coordinated by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO).

Objectives

With the start of Japan’s next generation meteorological satellite, Himawari-8 in 2015, there will be followed by FY-4 of China, Geo-KOMPSAT-2A of Korea over Asia and Oceania. To further enhance the exchanges on application techniques among satellite data users in Asia/Oceania as well as to advance satellite observation technologies and to promote synergetic development related to meteorological satellites in this region, The 7th Asia-Oceania/2nd AMS-Asia/ 2nd KMA Meteorological Satellite Users’ Conference will be held in Songdo City, Incheon, Korea
