Knowledge exchange series

#climatecoffees are short (circa 40 min), relaxed meetings for scientists to share ideas, discuss methods and communicate new results. They are open to speakers of all levels of seniority, we especially encourage early career scientists to become a speaker.

The coffees are an exciting opportunity for scientists to build a network and disseminate recent results, peer-to-peer.

We invite researchers from across the climate science community to join us for this series of regular online knowledge exchange events.

In average, we organise one or two #climatecoffees per month, always on Thursdays. The time is always the same, from 11:00 - 11:40 am.


Call for speakers 2023 is now open!

Are you interested in giving a talk in the next sessions, or hearing more?

Please email Chiara chb@we dont want and give us a bit more details: your short bio, a potential title, a teaser for the talk and the preferred date.... It has to be a Thursday! 

We will close applications at regular intervals and get back to you within two weeks.

Thu 16 February 2023 Climate coffees meet GHRSST Talks 

Cristina Gonzalez Haro (GHRSST, ICM, BECS), 5:30 pm-6:15 pm

Evaluation and intercomparison of GHRSST products at a global scale: Sea Surface Temperature (SST) plays an important role in the production of satellite based Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) observations. Cristina will explain novel approaches for assessing different sources of satellite-derived SST products, formatted according to the GHRSST standards.
