Several polarimetric missions are scheduled for launch in the coming years by international and national space agencies. Satellite polarimetry is one of the most promising and, at the same time, largely underexploited fields of aerosol remote sensing. This is the 1st meeting of the planned series of workshops on satellite polarimetry. These scientific workshops aim to promote international collaboration as well as in-depth exchange of ideas and experiences on diverse aspects of polarimetric remote sensing, in particular: advances in the theory of polarimetric remote sensing, optimisation of strategies of polarimetric Earth observations, improvement of polarimetric observation quality and information content, advancement of retrieval algorithms and data processing, and long-term Cal/Val.

Scope 1
Recent developments of polarimetric Earth-observing sensors
Scope 2
Calibration of polarimetric sensors and data pre-processing

Scope 3
Electromagnetic scattering and polarized radiative transfer

Scope 4
Polarimetric remote sensing of atmospheric components, especially atmospheric aerosols
Scope 5
Other applications of polarimetric remote sensing
Scope 6
Long-term validation of polarimetric products
