the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites
The NOAA, NASA and EUMETSAT Satellite Hyperspectral Sensor
Workshop was held in Miami, Virginia Key, Florida, U.S., March 29 - 31, 2011.
The workshop explored existing and future satellite-borne Fourier
transform (FTS) interferometers and grating spectrometers, and their
applications to greenhouse gas (e.g. carbon dioxide-CO2 and methane-CH4)
monitoring, atmospheric chemistry, and weather forecasting.

Workshop Dedicated to the Memory
Dr. Moustafa Chahine
The Satellite Hyperspectral Sensor Workshop was
dedicated to our colleague and friend Dr. Moustafa Chahine, who was a
Science Team Leader for NASA's Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS).
Dr. Chahine passed away on March 24, 2011. Read more about his
career and work.
The Workshop was held at the University of Miami (UM), Rosenstiel
School of Marine & Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) in Miami, Virginia Key,
Florida, in its auditorium.
RSMAS's campus is adjacent to and just across the Rickenbacker causeway
road from the NOAA Atlantic
Oceanographic Meteorology Laboratory (AOML), the workshop host and is
located on Virginia Key. RSMAS's auditorium address is: 4600 Rickenbacker
Causeway, Miami, Florida (FL), 33149. The University of Miami is a
private university with RSMAS as one of the U.S.'s premier centers of
oceanographic research and education.

Wednesday, March 30 - Group Dinner:
A Hyperspectral Workshop group dinner, self-funded with each individual
paying, was held Wednesday night, March 30 at The Rusty Pelican, a
nearby restaurant overlooking Key Biscayne Bay/Virginia Key. About 50
participated. The dinner was open to all workshop attendees and their
The Hyperspectral Workshop was organized by staff of the National
