By | February 5, 2004

      This spring the European Space Agency will select finalists for the Earth Explorer satellite missions. Before decisions are taken, the ESA will hold an Earth Explorer User Consultation Meeting, which will be held on 19-20 April at ESA’s ESRIN facility in Frascati, Italy. The six candidates for funding are: EarthCARE (Earth, Clouds, Aerosols and Radiation Explorer); SPECTRA (Surface Processes and Ecosystem Changes Through Response Analysis); WALES (Water Vapor and Lidar Experiment in Space); ACE+ (Atmosphere and Climate Explorer), EGPM (European Contribution to the Global Precipitation Monitoring Mission); and SWARM (a constellation of small satellites to study the dynamics of the Earth’s magnetic field).
