The 19th International Science Team Meeting (GHRSST XIX) will be hosted by EUMETSAT in Darmstadt, Germany, from 4th to 8th June 2018.

The meeting brings scientific and operational SST users and producers together to review progress and achievements of SST science and applications within the GHRSST framework. The meeting is open to SST experts and the application community actively involved in SST science and applications. The meeting format will use plenary discussion and keynote talks to tackle specific issues. Poster sessions will be used to promote discussion. Abstracts are invited on any topic relating to SST.

The meeting will be followed immediately by the 7th CEOS SST-VC meeting on Friday 8th June from 14:00 to 18:00. As usual, the meeting takes place at the very end of the GHRSST Science Team meeting so the SST-VC members can collate all of the scientific and technical progress from the week and develop a coherent strategy for the year ahead, linking GHRSST and CEOS to advance the needs of SST users around the world.

The GHRSST XIX EUMETSAT website contains much practical information about the venue and location.
