On behalf of all the co-conveners, I would like to draw your attention to a session at the upcoming Fall American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting entitled “Enabling breakthrough science with high-bandwidth satellite communications.” The goal of the session is explore the various methods by which the next-generation of Earth and planetary science can be improved through substantially higher intersatellite or downlink data rates. The session solicits abstracts from both industry and academia on all aspects related to the topic, to include the new science that could be achieved to the instrumentation and infrastructure required to make it possible. We hope that you will consider submitting an abstract to this session, and help contribute to this exciting and promising new research area.
As a reminder, this year’s Fall AGU meeting will take place in New Orleans from December 11-15, 2017. The abstract submission deadline is Wednesday, 2 August 23:59 EDT.
