Space conference opens in Bergen

The 2010 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium is held in Norway's west coast city of Bergen from Monday till Thursday this week, with more than 1200 delegates participating.

The Living Planet Symposium is seen by many as Europe's most important conference for Earth observation satellites and monitoring of our planet's climate and environment.

It is being organized by the European Space Agency (ESA), in cooperation with the Norwegian Space Centre and the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC).

The symposium covers all areas of Earth observation, highlighting the results and ESA's planned missions, as well as bringing together the key scientists and decision-makers worldwide.

- The very first results from the three new European research satellites GOCE, SMOS and CryoSat-2 will be presented, says Johnny Johannessen, Research Director at NERSC.

It was Johannessen who suggested that the Living Planet Symposium for 2010 should be held in Bergen. One reason was that NERSC and Norwegian scientists have been working with Earth observation since the 1980s.

Today they are involved in several national and international research and development projects based on ESA's Earth observation satellites.
