UCAR's COSMIC Program Office invites you to register for the Eighth FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC Data Users Workshop, to be held at UCAR's Center Green (CG1) conference facility in Boulder, Colorado, USA from 30 September to 2 October 2014.
The FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC is a joint U.S.-Taiwan mission, launched in April 2006. Since its launch, FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC has provided more than three million GPS radio occultation (RO) soundings to support research and operation. More than 1,800 researchers from 63 countries are registered users of the data.
The series of FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC Data Users Workshops have been an excellent forum for a dialogue between RO data providers and data users, and with which to promote and broaden the applications of RO data in various science disciplines, including weather, climate, and space weather.
Registration information and additional details about the workshop can be found at:
