The present “Oceans from Space” is the 5th event in a series that focuses attention, once every ten years, on the use of aerospace technologies for marine research. Previous editions of the Symposium have always been held in Venice, in 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010, following the very first “Oceanography from Space” workshop, held in Woods Hole, MA (USA), back in 1964.
The 5th “Oceans from Space”, postponed to 11-15 October 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, offers a rich 5-day program of scientific and social activities at the Scuola Grande di San Marco, located in the historical centre of Venice. The event is sponsored by prominent Scientific Institutions and Space Agencies. The program is managed by international Co-Chair, Scientific and Organizing Committees.
