From 5 – 8 October 2015, the 3rd international conference on Phenology was held at Kusadasi/Turkey. It was jointly hosted by the Humboldt-University of Berlin and the Adnan Menderes University Aydin. 86 contributions from scientists of 23 countries were presented on the topics “Phenological observations, networks, data collection”, “Climate variablilty, change and trends”, “Phenological modelling”, and “Challenges, new approaches and progress”.
Within the session “Remote Sensing and Phenology”, Carina Kübert presented ongoing work of her PhD thesis on “Deriving phenological layers for Germany from remote sensing data: spatio-temporal analysis and validity”. One of our MSc students, Jeroen Staab, co-authered a presentation given by our former colleague Sarah Asam (now EURAC, Italy), showing first results of phenological monitoring for the entire Alps. Jeroen helped to derive phenological metrics during his internship at EURAC.
