Lasers and Forest Ecology

In this workshop examples from different perspectives will be presented on issues related to the use of novel laser technology for studying forest dynamics and provide new insights in forest structure and forest ecology.

Organised by Laboratory of Geo-information Science and Remote Sensing

Tue 30 October 2018 13:00 to 15:00

Venue Gaia, building number 101
Room 1

The workshop precedes the PhD thesis defense of Alvaro Lau. You are also invited to attend the public defense of their theses in the Aula.
