Water Quality Information for the Benefit of Society
The future of Earth Observation technology, products and people: A Virtual GEO AquaWatch Community Workshop
The use of Earth Observation (EO) for water quality applications is rapidly advancing. GEO AquaWatch invites you to a three-day gathering of the inland and coastal water quality community. The objective of this biennial meeting is to assess the current state of the science, technology, products and workforce of this field and identify short- and long-term priority activities for the GEO AquaWatch community. We will foster discussions of data and technology challenges, linkages between Earth Observation (EO) data providers and stakeholders, EO capacity building and education. The workshop will have presentations from international projects and partnerships, providing a unique opportunity to engage with the international water quality EO community. GEO AquaWatch has a strong emphasis on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) policies and these principles will be encouraged in program participants and discussions.
