The 21st International Science Team Meeting (GHRSST XXI) took place online on 1-4 June 2020. The meeting was held online due to the Covid-19 pandemic and not, as originally planned, in Boulder. Instead of having to cancel G-XXI all together, EUMETSAT came to the rescue and provided us with an opportunity to hold a virtual meeting. This new way of collaborating and interacting proved to be successful and provided an opportunity for new participation by scientists and colleagues who would have not usually been able to attend the meeting in person.The meeting brought scientific and operational SST users and producers together to review progress and achievements of SST science and applications within the GHRSST framework.
