Presentations (talks and posters) on these and related topics will be welcome:

  • Occultation methodology (generic aspects, math-phys basis, iono. influences)
  • Occultations in ionosphere and planetary science
  • Scientific investigations with COSMIC data
  • Results obtained with GNSS RO
  • Data validation experiments
  • Comparisons with other sensors - including other RO missions (CHAMP, SAC-C, GRACE, TerraSAR-X, METOP/GRAS)
  • Status of Precise Orbit Determination and Excess Atmospheric Phase Processing - Algorithm improvements and validation studies
  • GPS RO retrieval improvements in the lower troposphere and upper stratosphere
  • Reduction of the large- and small-scale ionospheric residuals in RO neutral atmospheric retrievals
  • Data assimilation into numerical models - Impact studies from NCEP, ECMWF, UKMO, and other leading weather centers
  • Climate studies with RO data - climate trend detection, climate model verification and improvement
  • Ionospheric weather, climate, variability, data assimilation, model verification and improvement
  • NWP model verification and improvement using RO data - improvement of micro-physical processes and parameterizations of planetary boundary layer, cloud/convection schemes, and gravity wave activity
  • Use of occultation data in atmospheric physics, meteorology, and NWP
  • Use of occultation data in climate monitoring and research

Abstracts will be accepted through July 1, 2017. Participants will be notified of abstract acceptance via email by July 31, 2017.
