Town Hall Meeting: NASA ICESat-2 Mission

Scientific Program: Conferences and Symposia
View by day and at-a-glance, includes author index and personal scheduler

Wednesday, 7 January 2015; 12:15–1:15 p.m.; Room 130

The Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) is the new space-based altimeter mission being developed for a target launch in 2017. ICESat-2 will continue important observations of ice-sheet elevation change, sea ice freeboard, and vegetation canopy height begun by the first ICESat mission, which operated from 2003 to 2009. This town hall discusses the primary ICESat-2 data products and highlights the different initiatives and goals of the ICESat-2 Applications program. Our goal is to elicit questions to foster the development of currently underrepresented thematic areas that will benefit from ICESat-2 measurements. More information can be found at http://icesat.gsfc.nasa.gov/icesat2/apps-ov.php.
