ESA's Sea State CCI held its 2nd User Consultation Meeting (UCM) on 23rd-25th March 2021. This was purely an online event, with presentations over Webex, and posters available using padlets. There is a Book of Abstracts, whilst a full list of the presentations (with PDFs of most of them) is given below.
