  • Invited papers on ESA-funded studies and Sentinel-1 and future ESA SAR mission status reports;
  • Round-table discussions with seed questions prepared by the session chairpersons and ESA.

Fringe 2020 Objectives

  • To bring together the global InSAR research and development communities and facilitate international exchange betwen reseachers and research groups;
  • To assess the state of the art in InSAR Science and Applications;
  • To present the Sentinel-1 mission status, algorithms and products;
  • To present the BIOMASS mission status, algorithms and products;
  • To review and assess the progress according to the recommendations voiced at FRINGE 2017;
  • To consult the scientific communities to prepare ESA for starting supporting science activities for Sentinel-1 and BIOMASSin the InSAR domain.
