ITC has organized an educational seminar with Dr. Johannes Frerick, Sentinel-3 Payload Manager from ESA. The Sentinel-3 mission are two satellites that aid the Copernicus Earth observation program by measuring the sea-surface topography, sea- and land-surface temperature, ocean colour and land colour. This mission supports ocean forecasting systems as well as environmental and climate monitoring. The seminar will take you through the several steps of development, deployment and validation of the mission, as well as upcoming missions.

Topics that will be presented:

* Mission development process and planning
* Mission focus to science parameter determination
* Validation activities
* Future upcoming missions
* Avenues for other organizations to get involved in new science mission
