Measuring waves and currents from space: the SKIM proposal for ESA EE9
Convener: Fabrice Ardhuin 
Tue, 25 Apr, 19:00–20:00

We propose The "Surface KInematics Multiscale monitoring mission" (SKIM) to be ESA's Earth Explorer 9, due for launch in 2024. Ahead of the June 15 proposal deadline, this meeting aims to give an update on the technical specifications of the mission (resolution and accuracy achievable with today's knowledge, and expected improvements in the coming decade). It will be an occasion to exchange with a wider audience. The mission is targeted mostly for oceanography, sea ice and coastal hazards, but it has interesting potential for Solid Earth (microseism source monitoring) and boundary layer meteorology (warm rain).

This meeting is designed to bring together the large proposing SKIM team and get feedback from the wider scientific community.
