Conveners of a session on GNSS applications for water vapor observations are seeking research paper submissions. The session will take place during the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) Conference 2023 taking place July 30 to Aug. 4 in Singapore.

Session AG06 is titled “Assimilation of Space- and Ground-based Water Vapor Observations for Weather Forecasting and GNSS Applications.”

Observation of water vapor is one of the priorities in the Global Climate Observing System. Obtaining and exploiting additional high-quality humidity observations from GNSS and other remote sensing techniques is essential to improve weather forecasting and climate monitoring, the session conveners explained.

Abstract contributions are being sought on the topic, such as:

  • new algorithms to estimate water vapor from ground-based and space-based techniques, such as ground-based GNSS, space-based RO, InSAR, visible/near-infrared/infrared/microwave sensors and other sensors
  • retrieval and inter-comparison of water vapor among multiple instruments
  • assimilation and analysis of water vapor products from ground-based GNSS, space-based RO, InSAR, and various remote sensing/meteorological satellites for nowcasting and weather forecasting
  • use of numerical weather prediction models for modeling outputs as atmospheric corrections for GNSS, InSAR, VLBI and other geodetic observation techniques
  • estimation of atmospheric parameters from crowdsourcing equipment
  • atmospheric products for climate, hydrology, natural disasters and others.

The submission deadline is Feb. 14. Submit abstracts here.
