GOFC-GOLD-Fire Workshop on Satellite Product Validation
July9-11, 2001 - hosted by Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian

The workshop will be held jointly with the CEOS Cal/Val Subgroup on Land Product Validation. Presentations will be given on recent satellite fire product validation and breakout groups undertake to explore opportunities for international collaboration and to develop protocols product validation and reporting.

GOFC-GOLD Regional Workshop on Remote Sensing of Forest Cover in Northwestern Russia and Fennoscandia
June 25-27, 2001 - hosted by INENCO Center of RAS

The goal of this regional GOFC-GOLD workshop is to promote a coordinated effort among scientists in the region towards building an observational boreal forest network which would result in operational monitoring of forest cover and forest cover change, and to make data and information on forests usable and accessible. The workshop will examine current uses of remote sensing in studies of forest cover and carbon exchange in the region, evaluate existing data sets useful for validation and interpretation of remote sensing data products, identify future needs of different user groups, and plan future interdisciplinary research and exchange activities. The workshop will also discuss forest inventory, monitoring, management, and conservation. They will explore current gaps of knowledge in land use and the carbon budget for the region, including understanding of changing disturbance regimes and driving forces of land use change.

GOFC Scientific & Technical Board (STB)
June 12-13, 2001 - hosted by ESA

The second annual GOFC-GOLD Scientific and Technical Board is being held at the European Space Agency's headquarters in Frascati, Italy. The STB ensures the continuing progress toward GOFC-GOLD's long-term objective of providing on-going space-based and in-situ observations of forests and other vegetation cover for sustainable management of terrestrial resources, and to obtain an accurate, reliable, quantitative understanding of the terrestrial carbon budget.

WGCV Land Products Validation (LPV) Subgroup Meeting
June 7-8, 2001 - hosted by ESA/ESRIN

The LPV Subgroup brings together scientists who are working to produce and validate land surface parameter products derived from spaceborne sensors. This meeting will focus on Leaf Area Index (LAI) products and will provide a forum to discuss validation methods, protocols and opportunities for international collaboration. Issues to be discussed will include a review of current LAI validation activities and the identification potential gaps.

Terrestrial Carbon Observation (TCO) - In situ terrestrial carbon observations
June 5-8, 2001 - hosted by GTOS

This workshop is aimed at preparing for systematic global observations of the terrestrial carbon sources and sinks. Further development of the in situ component by addressing how it can best contribute - in terms of data, analysis, networking etc. - to the global system will be discussed. Participants will represent programs at various levels: global, continental and regional, as well as some national programmes. It is hoped that opportunities for enhanced collaboration and specific new actions to develop the in situ component of TCO will emerge that will not only assist scientific efforts but also national efforts to assess carbon stocks and fluxes.

GOFC-WGISS Test Facility (WTF) Technical meeting
Mar. 12-15, 2001 - hosted by ESA/ESRIN

Co-sponsored by WGISS and GOFC-GOLD, the WGISS Test Facility has been established to prototype and demonstrate the use of interoperable data and services. The purpose of this meeting will be to conduct technology integration of the WTF-GOFC prototypes across new implemented interfaces and servers. Resolving any implementation issues and identifying new GOFC requirements for the future OGC testbeds will also be addressed.
