22nd GHRSST International Science Team Meeting (G-XXII)

Event Date(s):

Monday 7th June 2021 -
Friday 11th June 2021



The 22nd International Science Team Meeting (GHRSST XXII) will be a virtual meeting and take place on 7-11 June 2021.

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

Whilst we are disappointed again not to be meeting in person due to the coronavirus pandemic, this is another exciting opportunity to extend our GHRSST collaboration by virtual means with the support of EUMETSAT.

The meeting will consist of a mixture of real-time presentations and discussions, and pre-recorded presentations and posters with online discussion forums. The real-time sessions will be shared between East and West time zones so as to facilitate global participation.

We invite the submission of abstracts on SST dataset development, production, validation, and use in applications.

Meeting format

The virtual meeting will be a mixture of pre-recorded and real time sessions with opportunities to meet colleagues online for social and science conversation.

  • The science sessions will consist of a mix of pre-recorded oral presentations and posters with online discussion forums (similar to the meeting last year).
  • The reports from the agencies will be via a slide-deck made available to participants and there will be some real time meetings for questions.
  • The task teams will make their reports in oral presentations to real time meetings (using Zoom or Webex).
  • We will also have the opening and closing sessions in real time.
  • For the course of the meeting GHRSST will have a virtual room based at wonder.me where colleagues can meet up and move between small group video conversations.
