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.
