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.

The meeting will be a mixture of on-line oral and poster sessions and will be based at a Moodle page at EUMETSAT. We are glad to have the support of the EUMETSAT training team. Note: the meeting will NOT use Zoom software. All participants should create an account at https://training.eumetsat.int/.

Enrolment is now open. Participants can enrol (register) for the meeting by going to site above, clicking on GROUPS > GHRSST and then on the link: 21st GHRSST INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE TEAM MEETING (G-XXI) or go to  https://training.eumetsat.int/enrol/index.php?id=367 and log in. Click on Self­-enrolment (Participant) and follow the instructions. Most of the meeting page content will be hidden until the start of the meeting at 00:00 GMT on Monday 1st June 2020.

Oral sessions will use pre-recorded presentations. Participants can 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.
