The GRACE/GRACE-FO Science Team Meeting 2018 will take place at the Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, 9-11 October 2018.

The GRACE/GRACE-FO Science Team meeting will be a mix of moderated discussions on specific themes, and contributed presentations on various subjects. The format of the moderated sessions is the responsibility of the respective conveners. The contributed abstracts will be organized by subject, and delivered as either oral or poster presentations.

The meeting will open with a brief GRACE-FO Project Status session, which consists of the mission and flight segment technical status as well as future science plans and status and information on the latest GRACE Release 06 data releases from the Science Data System.

Abstracts are solicited from the Science Team members and other attendees for presentations in the areas as described in the session description. Authors may submit more than one abstract. Shortly after the submission deadline, the Meeting Program will be finalized and announced.

Optional, if you have special requirements or suggestions for new data product definition, or on product accuracy, resolution or latency, we invite you to send a 2-page (maximum) summary as a text or PDF file (preferred) to the program committee.

The meeting is open to the scientists of all nations.
