June 25th and 26th : MAG meeting #2

The Mission Advisory Group (MAG) for CIMR will meet for the 2nd time in ESTEC, June 25th and 26th.

They will discuss the retrieval algorithms for the CIMR objectives (Sea Ice Concentration, Thickness, Drift, Sea Surface Temperature, Salinity, etc...), and the progress made by the two Phase A/B1 industry consortia so far. 

CIMR enables monitoring polar ocean surface temperatures

Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is a crucial parameter for operational Arctic weather and met ocean forecasts. It can be measured from Space using two types of satellite instruments:

CIMR: a Game-Changer

In February 2018, for an invited post at the EGU Cryospheric Science blog, Thomas Lavergne discussed how the Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR) could be a game-changer for operational monitoring of sea-ice.

He wrote: 

Before I tell you what makes CIMR so special, we need a short introduction on what passive microwave instruments are, why we like them for observing sea ice, and how they work: a web-resource for the EU CIMR mission

CIMR, the Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer now has its own webpage!

The webpage will gather useful information and resources about this Passive Microwave mission, candidate to the Expansion of the Copernicus Spate Component (CSC) from 2026.

CIMR is a user-driven mission in support of the European Union's Arctic Policy, with two focii:
