Dr. Hooman Latifi from the Dept. of Remote Sensing held an invited speech on “Remote sensing-assisted mapping of bark beetle-induced tree mortality” at the first conference on comprehensive monitoring of stand dynamics in Białowieża forest supported by remote sensing (ForBioSensing) in Białowieża, Poland, from November 30th to December 2nd, 2016. The conference also hosted different generations and forestry-related disciplines from Polish and international research institutions.

y9djssfaThe ForBioSensing is a project funded by the LIFE program of the European Union, and its activities are focused on providing a comprehensive illustration of changes in forest stands and their dynamics (by using of several different time series of remote sensing data) and moving from the point scale monitoring (field measurements on sample plots) to the large scale area monitoring.
