The Second International Workshop on Multi-angular Measurements and Models (IWMMM-2) was held in Ispra, Italy, on September 15-17, 1999. This 3-day meeting addressed three main objectives:
-To establish the state of the art in direct and inverse modelling techniques, including those proposed for the operational exploitation of earlier instruments (e.g. geostationary satellites and the POLDER), and recently launched platforms (e.g. Eos Terra).

-To review current and near-future multi-angular air and space-borne missions, as well as the latest developments in field and laboratory instruments.

-To demonstrate the usefulness of quasi-simultaneous multi-angular and multi-spectral measurements, when exploited with appropriate models, through either an improved accuracy and reliability of the results or the generation of new geophysical products. cts.
