KEPLER Survey - Early Career Scientist online workshop
The Horizon 2020 funded project KEPLER (Key Environmental monitoring for Polar Latitudes and European Readiness) is planning to host an online workshop in tentatively mid-February for students and Early Career Scientists.
To help us out forming the workshop and chose the topics, we would be grateful if you took the time to fill out this survey. The full agenda and registration will be sent out in Mid January 2021.
Please share the news with your students and early career scientists.
KEPLER (Key Environmental monitoring for Polar Latitudes and European Readiness) is a multi-partner initiative, built around the operational European Ice Services and Copernicus information providers, to prepare a road map for Copernicus to deliver an improved European capacity for monitoring and forecasting the Polar Regions. KEPLER will run from 1st January 2019 to 31st March 2021, has a budget of €2.9M, 15 project partners, and is an EU Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action (CSA). Read more about the project here
The marine environment in the Polar Regions is changing; with this comes to both challenges and opportunities. Earth Observation (EO) has a key role to play in the sustainable development of the region, and the information services provided must be flexible to respond to the changing needs and conditions. Importantly they must provide much-needed information for Arctic peoples and wider society, science, private sector and decision-makers.

Are you familiar with the Copernicus services (e.g. CMEMS, CLMS, CAMS, C3S) and their products?
How would you rate the range of polar regions specific data products from Copernicus services?
Poor (too few products available)
Very satisfied (extensive number of products available)
What part of the Copernicus Services and the sea ice products should be improved to enhance your use of the service?
Wider geographical coverage
Higher temporal resolution (high frequency)
Higher spatial resolution
More API to access products
Products available in different data formats
Simplify the overview/direct access of the sea ice products avaliable
Access to information on the product quality
Information on validation metrics and uncertainities
Clear labeling of intended use
