In December 2014, a submarine volcano erupted violently in the South Pacific, sending superheated steam, ash, and rock 9 kilometres (30,000 feet) into the air. When the plume cleared and the ash settled in January 2015, a newborn island with a 120-metre (400-foot) summit was nestled between two older islands in the kingdom of Tonga.
Research and Applications

Europe's new Sentinel-5P satellite has captured a dramatic image of the smoke billowing away from the devastating California wildfires.
It is a powerful demonstration of 5P's ability to sense the atmosphere.

The Agriculture sector can vastly benefit from Copernicus full free and open data and information. The Copernicus programme already interacts with different stakeholders from the agricultural sector and the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service has a number of information products which can be relevant for the Agriculture domain. However, the full potential of the Copernicus programme in support of agriculture can be further developed and exploited.
The aim of the workshop is to address the possible role of the private (downstream) sector for possible solutions, integrating Copernicus data and Copernicus services' information, in support of the agricultural end-users at the different levels: international, European and Member States' level.
The event is open and free to registered participants. Please go to "Register now" to sign up as a participant. The registration will close on 31 January 2018.
