The workshop series is unique as it brings together satellite soil moisture users and developers with the aim of deriving and exploiting soil moisture from passive and active microwave satellite missions/sensors (SMAP, SMOS, ASCAT, AMRS-2, Sentinel-1, and other legacy missions) as well as optical instruments (e.g., MODIS, Sentinel-2, and others).

The following research questions will be addressed during the 6th Workshop:
– Which is the current quality of satellite soil moisture products and which will be the target in the near future?
– Who is using satellite soil moisture observations and for which purposes?
– Which are the user’s requirements for a better exploitation of the products and which are the main limitations that should be overcome?
– Which is the future of the remote sensing of soil moisture in terms of new missions and new products?

The 6th workshop follows up those held at the European Space Agency in Frascati (Italy, in 2013), at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in Amsterdam (The Netherlands, in 2014), at the Millenium Broadway Hotel in New York (USA, in 2016), at the Vienna University of Technology (Austria, in 2017), and at George Mason University (USA, in 2018).

From Rome Termini there are different options. First option: trains directly to Perugia Fontivegge; second option: take the main line between Rome and Florence which stops at Terontola/Cortona Station: so coming from Rome, take one of the daily trains on the line to Florence and get off at Terontola/Cortona (1 hr., 40 min. to 2 hr.), where you can transfer to a Perugia-bound train (35 to 40 min.).[/cth_featurebox][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”slideInLeft” cth_layout=”gather_sec”][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text][cth_featurebox icon=”map-streamline-user” title=”HOW TO REACH PERUGIA BY CAR”]From the North (Milan, Florence), the best exit for Perugia on the A1 motorway is at Valdichiana, where the superstrada SS75bis branches into Umbria at Trasimeno Lake and continues towards Perugia.
From Rome travelling northwards along the A1 motorway the best exit for reaching Perugia is at Orte, which is connected to the regional capital at first by the SS204 to Terni and then by the E45 (or SS3bis) from Terni to Perugia.

The SS75bis has five exits for Perugia (from North): Perugia-Ferro di Cavallo, Perugia-Madonna Alta, Perugia-San Faustino (best to reach the main railway FS station, also good for the old town center), Perugia-Prepo (best to reach the old town center) and Perugia-Piscille (good to reach the old town center), Perugia-Ponte San Giovanni.[/cth_featurebox][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2615″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”slideInRight” cth_layout=”gather_sec”][vc_column][vc_column_text][cth_featurebox icon=”map-streamline-user” title=”PARKING”]Geoplan Perugia
