Our faculty will welcome about 100 invited scientists and engineers from around the world for the 7th Swarm Data Quality Workshop from 24 to 27 October 2017. Swarm is a European Space Agency (ESA) Earth Explorer consisting of a constellation of three satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), two flying in a pendulum formation and one at an altitude above this pair. The satellites were launched successfully on 22 November 2013 and are expected to have a lifetime of more than one solar cycle (11 years). Swarm primarily aims at observing Earth’s magnetic field with high temporal and spatial resolution.
The workshop is hosted by the section Astrodynamics and Space Missions (AS). The section AS forms part of an international consortium that is responsible for the scientific data processing. The objective of the workshop is to share updates on calibration, validation and data quality assessment work related to Swarm products.
