Successful cooperation extends Dragon Program
Date:4/24/2008

EUMETSAT and their Member States, allow coverage for a wide range of domains in Earth sciences and in applications," said ESAs Stefano Bruzzi, Head of EO Programme Planning & Coordination Service.

"This impressive capacity has been built from the beginning in a framework of international cooperation which ESA intends to pursue and enlarge in future years. Dragon is a very good example of the way ahead."

The Dragon 1 Programme, which began in April 2004, sought to stimulate increased scientific cooperation in EO science and applications between China and Europe.

Under Dragon 1, there were 16 projects exploiting data from ESA EO missions, including agricultural and forest monitoring, water resource assessment, atmospheric chemistry, terrain measurement, the ocean environment and climate change.

The projects outstanding scientific results were presented at the Dragon 1 final symposium and the final scientific publications are now available.

Unlike Dragon 1, Dragon 2 will provide European and Chinese scientists with equal access to the data available from relevant ESA and Chinese EO satellites.

Dragon 2 will continue to pair lead and young scientists together, organise training seminars, offer advanced courses and provide academic exchanges and training programmes for European and Chinese scientists.

Under Dragon 2, the number of projects has been increased to 25 following an Announcement of Opportunity, in which 52 proposals were received. The projects will cover the following themes: atmospheric studies, topographic mapping, hydrology, sea-ice monitoring, coastal-zones monitoring, land environment, geology, renewable resources, oceanography, hazards, large sports events and the calibration and validation of satellite data.

EO satellites are particularly useful for monitoring and understanding environmental phenomena in China, the worlds third largest country, because of the countrys sheer
