46 scientists from countries around the Baltic Sea region and Europe presented and discussed research results and future prospects in different fields in which remote sensing can be applied: salinity, sea level, land-sea carbon fluxes, terrestrial water resources, ocean temperature and color (which is an indicator for water quality and plankton) and ocean-atmosphere CO2 fluxes. An important outcome of the workshop will be the elaboration of future research foci related to remote sensing in the Baltic Sea region. The online workshop was initialized by ESA and was co-organized and hosted by the International Baltic Earth Secretariat at HZG. Further information about Baltic Earth
