MetOcean Solutions to visit European Space Agency

Dr Peter McComb, the Managing Director of MetOcean Solutions, will be visiting the Earth Observation Ground Segment Department of the European Space Agency in Rome during the first week of October.

The meetings will involve technical discussions regarding the use of space-based ocean observations for New Zealand waters, and furthering our understanding of the latest data products from the Sentinel 3 satellite that was launched just last February. During the visit, Peter will present the MetOcean Solutions approach to operational oceanography and also share the New Zealand initiatives to develop a Centre for Space Science Technology.
