Announcement SENSECO WG2 Workshop Toulouse France

Announcement SENSECO WG2 Workshop Toulouse France

Date: 5-7 February 2020

Time: start Wednesday 12:00 till Friday 12:00

Location: CESBIO, Toulouse, France

 

Workshop description

The general aim of SENSECO WG2 is to improve the time-series processing of satellite sensor data for modelling vegetation processes related to seasonal productivity.

This workshop aims:

  • to introduce the state-of-the-art methods for time-series analysis,
  • to discuss recent procedures for gap-filling and fusion of satellite data with high-resolution data-sources,
  • to practice hands-on time-series analysis with available toolboxes for a selection of datasets.

The workshop and follow-up actions will be adopted to prepare material for the Senseco training school in the summer of 2020.

 

The official invitation through eCOST and the detailed program with hotel and travel information will be announced by the end of November.

 

From the SENSECO MC, a budget has been foreseen for 14 persons for which hotel and travelling can be reimbursed.

The selection of these persons will be based on order of registration by sending an email to lammert.kooistra@wur.nl stating name and organization.

MC-3 meeting and joint working group (WG1, WG2, WG3, WG4) workshop

The meeting was be held 28-30 October 2019 at Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain.

The SENSECO team had a very exciting meeting including a keynote talk given by Matthias Drusch from ESA and brillant talks organised by the four working groups.

 

WG1 workshop focus on “SIF, NPQ, APAR, and Thermal scaling up approaches/protocols and its integration in RTM”.

The workshop will be hosted in Budapest city center on the 26-27 September 2019.

Several scientists have already confirmed their participation, SIF (Dr. Marco Celesti), NPQ (Dra. Shari Wittenberghe and Kelvin Acebron), Thermal (Dra. Monica Garcia), RTM (Dr. Christiaan van der Tol, Dr. Jochem Verrelst, and Dr. Zbynek Malenovsky), and Cal/Val protocol (Dr. Roberto Colombo). We are still missing scientists with expertise in APAR. If you have this expertise and are interested in collaborate with us, please, contact me with your idea/proposal and we will include you in the workshop program.

During the next days we will send an official cost invitation. Later on we will send you the information about transportation and hotel arrangement.

WG-3 workshop: Combining structural, optical and thermal measurements – can we quantify novel plant traits by combining these measurement modes?

Description:

  • We would like to work on the topis which came up during the meeting in Aveiro.

  • How we can derive ‘hidden’ plant traits that can not reliable be detected by a single measurement. 

  • Protocols for field work and multi-sensor data acquisition.  

  • Low cost sensors and solutions? 

  • Difference in observation scale.

  • Where: Cesis, Lettvia

  • When 30/09/-01/10/


    Furthermore, we will use the database collection (GP1) carried out by Corine Davids to develop together ideas based one data-set and discuss challenges and possibilities based on the experience of WG3 members. Analysis will be focused on stress detection in agriculture. Based on the literature review (GP1) carried out by Marlena Kycko we will discuss on the organization of writing a review paper. We will have an excursion to the lab and multi-sensor facilities of the Institute for Environmental Solutions. 
    The workshop is already fully booked. If you like to be on the waiting list, send an email to miriam.machwitz@list.lu stating name and organization.

SENSECO MC-2 and joint working group (WG1, WG2, WG3 and WG4) workshop

The event will take place 25-27 March 2019 at the University of Aveiro (Building 25), Aveiro, Portugal. We will start 25 March at 14:30 and will close 27 March before lunch time.

Core group meeting in Brno

Time: Tuesday 5 February 2018 14-18 hrs

Location: Brno City centre, hotel BWP Premier (https://www.hotelinternational.cz/en/)

 

Date: Monday January 28, 2019

Time: 10:00 -18:00

Location: Netherlands, Wageningen, Wageningen Campus

Meeting description

The general aim of SENSECO WG2 is to improve the time-series processing of satellite sensor data for modelling vegetation processes related to seasonal productivity. To initiate WG2, we would like to organize this kick-off meeting which will focus on making inventory and exchanging experience in time-series processing. In this way we would like to get:

1) an overview of available expertise of WG2 participants;

2) an overview of relevant long-term satellite time-series, time-series processing approaches and toolboxes.

This meeting and follow-up actions should lead to the development of standardized protocols for processing of time-series satellite data.

The official invitation through eCOST and the detailed program will be announced by the end of November.

From the SENSECO MC, a budget has been foreseen for 8 persons for which travelling can be reimbursed. The selection of these persons will be based on order of registration by sending an email to lammert.kooistra@wur.nl stating name and organization.

This list has been send to the members of the MC who have indicated that they are interested to participate in this WG.

 


Date: Monday February 04, 2019
Time: 10:00 -17:00
Location: Brno, Czech Republic, hotel BWP Premier (https://www.hotelinternational.cz/en/)


Meeting description
An important part of SENSECO is modelling activities, especially in relation to improved understanding of the SIF leaf-to-satellite scaling mechanisms. In this respect, we wish to interconnect, within the SENSECO network, the key players involved in SIF RTM model developments and applications. Therefore, we would like to initiate inter-comparison exercises for the various leaf and canopy RTMs producing SIF outputs. These exercises will enable us to address questions concerning the models’ performances, the role of biochemistry models, and eventually to consolidate leaf-to-canopy and canopy-to-satellite open scaling questions related to different structural arrangements of existing vegetation types.

The aim of the Modelling Workshop is to have discussion about the most effective setup of the inter-comparison exercises, somewhat similar to  the RAMI exercise previously coordinated by Jean-Luc Widlowski from the EC Joint Research Centre.

The official invitation through eCOST and the detailed program will be announced by the end of November.

From the SENSECO MC, a budget has been foreseen for 8 persons for which travelling can be reimbursed. The selection of these persons will be based on order of registration by sending an email to jochem.verrelst@uv.es or zbynek.malenovsky@gmail.com  stating name and organization.

This invitation has been sent to key players active in the SIF modelling field.

 

 

Announcement Kick-off meeting WG3 SENSECO - Sensor synergies

Date: Tuesday February 05, 2019

Time: 09:00 -13:00

Location: Brno, Czech Republic, hotel BWP Premier (https://www.hotelinternational.cz/en/)

Meeting description

Multi-sensor or synergistic sensor use will provide a deeper insight into the relations between spectral features and associated plant conditions. Working Group 3 aims to help realize synergies between passive optical EO domains.

  • Introduction into the topic
  • Overview on the expertise and sensors used from the WG3 participants
  • On which concrete topics do we like to work on? Plant stresses with different sensors? Which kind of stresses?
  • Will we use or even acquire (as part of a training for example) a common data set from different sensors?
  • What will be the next event?


First aims and deliverables for WG3 are best practice protocols and guidelines for synergistic use of multi-sensor approaches.

From the SENSECO MC, a budget has been foreseen for 8 persons for which travelling can be reimbursed. The selection of these persons will be based on order of registration by sending an email to miriam.machwitz@list.lu stating name and organization.
