Remote Sensing and Forest Monitoring

Organised by Laboratory of Geo-information Science and Remote Sensing

Mon 17 December 2018 10:00 to 12:00

Venue Gaia, building number 101
Room 1

In this workshop examples from different perspectives will be presented on issues related to monitoring and assessing forest dynamics using time series analysis, both using detailed tree measurements as well as satellite data. Focus will be on effects due to climate change.

The workshop precedes the PhD thesis defense of Mathieu Decuyper. You are also invited to attend the public defense of his thesis in the Aula.
