To improve our understanding of the Earth system and the impact human activity is having on natural processes, ESA's Earth Observation Envelope Program harnesses the relationship between science and technology to forge innovative missions that address the most urgent scientific questions of our time.

In early 2013, scientists and data users will have the opportunity to debate the merits of three competing concepts for the next Earth Explorer satellite mission. The European Space Agency (ESA) will hold a consultation meeting March 5 and 6 in Graz, Austria.

Details on how to register for the Earth Explorer User Consultation Meeting will be announced on theESAwebsite after confirmation of funding atESA’s Ministerial Council Meeting in November. The choices are:

• Biomass, which aims to observe forest biomass for a better understanding of the carbon cycle;

• CoReH2O, which aims to observe snow and ice for a better understanding of the water cycle; and

• PREMIER, which aims to observe atmospheric composition for a better understanding of chemistry–climate interactions.
