Brno, 5-8 February 2019 – Our researcher Nela Jantol participated at the 11th EARSeL Imaging Spectroscopy Workshop in Brno, a Czech town where Gregor Mendel performed his famous experiments with pea plan breading. Nela didn’t study peas, but learned how to record vegetation with different sensors.
Organized by EARSeL and CzechGlobe, the workshop gathered 185 scientists, students and industry representatives from 26 countries discussing the latest achievements in the field of hyperspectral remote research. Topics included rapid development of imaging spectroscopy from UAV platforms (drones), progress in interpretation of chlorophyll fluorescence signals in context of the upcoming FLEX satellite mission, and fusion of imaging spectroscopy with LiDAR and thermal data.
In addition to the rich scientific program, attendees also visited the planetarium in Brno, plant phenotyping facility at Photon System Instruments Ltd., as well as the Starobrno brewery.
