South America Water from Space III – Online event on the 19th of April 2022.

Dear colleagues and friends

After discussing with many of you over the past few weeks, we have realized that an in-person meeting was still difficult to achieve in the first semester of 2022, in part due to the challenges of international travel at present.

As a result, we have made the difficult decision, once again, to postpone the international conference “South America Water from Space III. The conference will now be held 21-25 November 2022, still at the premises of ITAIPU-Binational in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil.

Although the inperson meeting is postponed, we are organizing a 3-hour virtual meeting on the 19th of April to keep everyone updated with the SWOT mission and with the latest achievements in hydrology over South America. See below for the program and a visioconference link.

Please visit the conference web page for all other related information and updates.

We look forward to meeting you again in person soon!
