Workshop Summary (PDF)

The 2011 Workshop on Far-Infrared Remote Sensing focused on the scientific and observing challenges of characterizing the Earth's spectral radiance properties in the 15 to 100 µm region. Topics discussed included:

  • Instrumentation
  • Radiative transfer model development and validation
  • Thermodynamic profiling
  • Cloud property remote sensing
  • Climate studies

The workshop presenters were from research groups worldwide involved in far-infrared remote sensing. The workshop took place November 8-9, 2011, in the Pyle Center on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, at 702 Langdon St, Madison, WI 53706.
