The 21st International Science Team Meeting (GHRSST XXI) will take place online on 1-4 June 2020.

The meeting will bring scientific and operational SST users and producers together to review progress and achievements of SST science and applications within the GHRSST framework.

Whilst we are disappointed not to be meeting in person in Boulder (due to COVID-19), this is an exciting opportunity to extend our GHRSST collaboration by virtual means.

We will be working on the details of the G-XXI meeting programme over the coming weeks. The meeting will be a mixture of on-line oral and poster sessions with some real-time discussions and will be based at a Moodle page at EUMETSAT. We are glad to have the support of the EUMETSAT training team. In preparation for the meeting, please create an account at http://training.eumetsat.int .

For the oral sessions, authors will be able to record their presentations using Zoom software and upload them to the meeting page. Participants can then view the videos and enter into discussions in the on-line forum.

We will have poster sessions via a Padlet on the meeting page. Padlet allows authors to upload their poster and meeting participants to discuss the poster with the author and other participants by leaving comments and questions in an on-line forum.

Agency reporting will be via two slide Powerpoint presentations and an on-line forum.

The Task Teams (TTs) will each have a Moodle session where they can upload presentations and documents for discussion in their own on-line forum. We envisage making these Moodle sessions available for use in between Science Team meetings to facilitate the work of the TTs.

There will be real-time ‘telecon-like’ discussions for 2 or 3 topics. It is likely that these will take place in two sessions divided on time-zones: one East, one West.

The Advisory Council and SST-VC meetings will take place via WebEx (date and times below).

We will add more information to this web page as plans develop. Authors will of course be given details of how to record presentations and submit posters – the information will be sent out with the results of the abstract review and also added to the meeting web page.

Abstract Submission is closed.
