Following previous meetings contributions will be invited covering the following main themes, i.e. general land-use and classification, agriculture, soil and hydrology, forestry, ice and snow. Abstracts are solicited that include the views on the current status of applications using SAR data as well as the foreseen evolution required to enable or maintain robust applications. The evolution could be in the sense of use of additional either existent or novel auxiliary data products from either other remote sensing satellites (e.g. optical remote sensing) or ground-based networks and systems including climate and forecast models. This evolution could also be sought in the use of SAR-optical combination and multi-temporal, multi-wavelength SAR data products given SAR systems covering L- to X-band seem to be available to the community for many years to come.
