MORSE Initiative - Earth observation data for Arctic coastal users

http://eomag.eu/articles/850/morse-initiative-earth-observation-data-for-arctic-coastal-users

The MORSE Initiative focuses on the information needs of Arctic coastal users in government, non-governmental, municipal, industrial and scientific organizations. Particular emphasis is on those needs that can be satisfied, in whole or in part, by Earth Observation (EO) data from satellites. This new initiative is jointly managed by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and European Space Agency (ESA). The MORSE consultation workshop opens a dialogue with users and lays the foundation for a subsequent Request for Proposals and Invitation to Tender early in 2009 by CSA and ESA, respectively.
