Group on Earth Observations Holds Meeting in Brazil

Starting today, May 29, representatives of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), an intergovernmental organization comprising various countries, are meeting in São José dos Campos, in the interior of São Paulo state, to discuss earth observation projects.

The event, which is sponsored by the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Relations in conjunction with the National Space Research Institute (INPE), an agency linked to the Ministry of Science and Technology, will proceed through Wednesday, May 31.

Participants in the debates include the Brazilian representative to the GEO, Maria Teresa Mesquita Pessoa; experts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the principal meteorological agency of the United States; and the representative of the European Community, Pierre Valette.

The GEO’s goal is to establish a global system using various instruments and techniques to provide detailed observations of the earth and to convert these data into information essential to society.
