By | August 23, 2004

      The European Space Agency (ESA) will host a meeting next month for more than 700 scientists from 50 countries who will analyze the performance of the agency’s Envisat satellite mission. Envisat reportedly is the most powerful means ever created of monitoring the state of the planet and the impact of people’s activities on the world, carrying 10 sophisticated optical and radar instruments to observe and monitor the Earth’s land, atmosphere, oceans and ice caps.

      The symposium will take place in Salzburg, Austria, and it aims to address almost all fields of Earth science, including atmosphere, coastal studies, radar, winds and waves, vegetation and agriculture, landslides, natural risks, gas mapping, ocean color, oil spills and ice.
