“First Galileo Solar Space Telescope Workshop” – INPE, 16-18 de março de 2020

Prezados Alunos,

O INPE está organizando o evento “First Galileo Solar Space Telescope Workshop”, que ocorrerá no auditório do LIT de 16-18 de março de 2020. A Galileo (Galileo Solar Space Telescope, GSST) é uma missão de fronteira com o objetivo de fornecer medidas do campo magnético na superfície solar e nas camadas mais baixas de sua atmosfera, dentro de um esforço internacional para entender a evolução da Heliosfera. O objetivo principal do workshop é preparar para uma análise formal da missão GSST, incluindo a possibilidade de realização técnica e programática dos conceitos candidatos (Fase 0/A) que deverá ocorrer de maio/2020 a novembro/2020.

O evento foi organizado de forma que a comunidade participe na forma de apresentações e discussões em painéis, posters, e interações durante o evento. Diversos pesquisadores de instituições que conceberam e operam missões espaciais científicas foram convidados para contribuírem com apresentações discutindo o estado da arte nas áreas de física solar, influência da atividade solar no clima terrestre, e acoplamento vento solar-magnetosfera.

Este evento é uma excelente oportunidade para os acadêmicos dos programas de pós-graduação do INPE acompanharem a concepção de uma missão espacial científica. Desta forma, sugerimos que os acadêmicos do programa de Pós-Graduação em Geofísica Espacial submetam trabalhos para serem apresentados durante o evento. As inscrições e submissão de trabalho podem ser realizadas no seguinte link: http://www.inpe.br/gsst/registration.php. As inscrições se encerram dia 24/01/2020.

Título:  “Opportunities and challenges for diagnosing terrestrial C cycling”

Abstract:
Society increasingly relies on complex models of the earth system to support decision making. The IPCC process is a clear example related to climate security, but there are other examples of decision support systems related to food and water security, sea level rise, afforestation and so on. Models have been tremendously useful in scaling fundamental knowledge across space and time. However, a major weakness has been in evaluating model uncertainty and communicating this to decision makers. Uncertainty arises from errors in model structure, forcing and parameters.  Here, taking the example of the terrestrial carbon cycle, I discuss how new data products can be fused with simple models to address model errors and to provide forecast uncertainty estimation. This model-data fusion (MDF) eliminates many subjective components of model parameterisation, allowing the interaction between data, forcing and model structure to reveal spatial patterns in underlying processes. In allowing parameter maps to emerge from the model-data fusion, novel ecological information can be exploited. By using a simple model the issue of tuning is completely explicit in MDF, compared to typical complex models. Model-data fusion allows direct quantification of the information content of new global data sets, e.g. for biomass, soil moisture, and how this information propagates through the model (e.g. the role of fire and/or soil moisture in the C cycle). MDF provides an analysis of the current state of the terrestrial C cycle and its processes. As such, it can support robust evaluation of prognostic models of the C cycle, for instance via reliability ensemble averaging. There are enormous opportunities for MDF approaches to evaluate alternate model structures, to maximise the value of new earth observations, and to link to ecological datasets for better constraint. Ensemble outputs provide a means to inform policy makers about the uncertainties in forecasts.

Abstract:
The Andes Lidar Observatory-ALO (30.3 S, 70.7 W) is located in the northern Chilean region near the Atacama desert. The dryness of the region makes it ideal for aeronomical experiments relying on clear skies conditions and low cloud coverage throughout the year, and most importantly, for being a hot spot for mountain and convectively generated gravity waves. Because of that, several optical instruments are operated at ALO since 2009 on a continuous base. The aeronomical instrument suit corresponds to a word-class resonance W/T Na Lidar system, a 40 kW Enhanced Meteor Detection Radar operating at 60 MHz, OH mesosphere temperature mapper, and several all-sky nightglow imagers equipped to observe the space-time variations of the OH(6-2), O2(0-1), O(1S), O(1D), and Na nightglow brightness. In this talk, we want to show the different aspects of the lidar observatory and discuss the science investigation enabled by this set of instruments. We will show a number of important results obtained in the past few years and the endeavors we want to pursue in the near future.

Title:
EO BIG DATA ANALYSIS AND INTEGRATION FOR SUPPORTING RISK MITIGATION, ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING AND PROMOTING SDGS

Abstract:
The availability of the new advanced EO technologies characterized by an increasing growth of both classical and emerging technologies and multidisciplinary methodologies has opened new infinite possibilities, unthinkable only a few years ago especially. We already live in an age of a growing availability of free data and open access software tools that enhance a powerful link between in situ investigations and computer-based analysis thus offering a new opportunity for the exploitation of scientific outcomes. Therefore, the new and emerging challenges are the operational use of EO technologies, data dissemination and interoperability, along with costs, simplicity in use and speed of applications. Earth Observation (EO) technologies can enable advanced performance and new operational applications specifically addressed to security and risk (see, for example Copernicus program and Sentinel missions) also including the monitoring and preservation of heritage sites. Nevertheless, even if the potential of EO technologies for assessing and monitoring natural and man-made disasters is well known, still today the applications of RS data in operational disaster management and monitoring is a difficult task.
To move from scientific to operational applications there are gaps to be filled and needs to be addressed. To improve risk estimation and management based on Remote Sensing data it is particularly important to set up operational approaches and methods for the diverse applications and risks, with protocols and quantitative evaluations of accuracy and reliability.

The lecture will be focused on:

–An Overview on active and passive satellite remote sensing technologies for supporting risk mitigation, environmental monitoring and promoting SDGs (Sustainable developing Goals- UN Agenda 2030)
–Remarkable case studies selected from Europe, Africa, Asia and Southern America
