Workshop Reports at the Department of Remote Sensing – April 27, 2018

We are glad to announcing two upcoming workshop reports at the department for Friday, 27th April 2018. Both presentations will deal with cropland classification and monitoring by using multi-temporal Sentinel-1 and -2 images.  First presentation will be about Agricultural monitoring using multi-temporal optical and SAR data in a complex cropping zone by our colleagues Talha Mahmood, Christopher Conrad, Muhammad Usman, and Nima Ahmadian. Abstract Agriculture is the backbone for Pakistan’s economy, which contributes 21% to the Gross Development Product (GDP) of the country. It also employs 45% of direct and indirect labor and provides the raw materials to main...

Workshop Report at the Department of Remote Sensing – April 11, 2018

Remote sensing for phenological monitoring: How to derive phenological information using MODIS time series for Germany? On April 11, 2018, our colleague Carina Kübert will address different questions on how to derive phenological information from time series analysis using MODIS data. Abstract “Phenology is perhaps the simplest process for changing the ecology of species as a response to climate change.” (Rosenzweig et al. 2007) There are several approaches to track phenology in the context of global change. Land Surface Phenology (LSP) deals with methods to monitor vegetation phenology using time series data from Earth Observation satellites. Getting deeper into...
