The first SCIRoCCo Calibration Meeting was held on 22-23/10/ 2014 at ESRIN, with the aim of detailing the way forward to the cross-calibration of ERS-1 and ERS-2 and to discuss the standardization of NetCDF format for Scatterometer data

An implementation timeline for the calibration activities has been defined, with the goal of having the new calibration files produced by March 2015
