Eurosite remote sensing webinar series – part 1: Using Earth observations to inform on changes within protected sites
For many years, Earth observations have provided substantive opportunities for informing on changes within protected areas, with many focusing on specific elements (e.g., flooding from rainfall, vegetation damage through fires). This webinar provides an overview of a new approach to describing change that is relevant both at the ground level and remotely, considers the full range of natural events and processes and human activities that might be taking place over a landscape across varying time frames and directly links to policy and land management.
This first webinar in a second Eurosite webinar series on remote sensing will take place on 3 March, 14.00 – 15.30. Please find more information regarding speaker Prof. Richard Lucas and the possibility to register in the tabs below. The webinar will afterwards be made available on the Eurosite website.
This next series of webinars provided by the Eurosite Remote Sensing Support Group focuses on ‘Roles of satellite images in biodiversity conservation’ and involves speakers from the UK, the Netherlands and Spain. These webinars will focus on the needs of nature conservation practitioners and will be targeted for that audience. The aim of these webinars is to increase the accessibility of remote sensing technologies for biodiversity conservation.
Next webinars in the series:
Habitat mapping using different RIS platforms, 17 March 2021, 14:00 – 15:30 CET.
European EUNIS habitat suitability, probability modelling and mapping, and the European Vegetation Archive (EVA), 31 March 2021, 14:00 – 15:00 CET.
