Join our 3rd workshop on Nov 25

We, Kostas Papathanassiou (German Aerospace Center), Nuno Carvalhais and Stefanie Burkert (Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry) from the EEBIOMASS initiative, would like to invite you to our third workshop on “Secondary mission products” on November 25, 14.00 – 16.00 CET.

EEBIOMASS is an initiative of the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research and the Department for Remote Sensing at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena. We build a user community and communicate relevant information on the ESA Earth Explorer mission BIOMASS, which will launch in 2023 to improve our understanding on the role of the land biosphere on the global carbon cycle, with clear implications in a context of climate change.

After presenting mission products for forests in our first two workshop, we will now introduce  you to the secondary mission products such as: mapping of the geological subsurface, the topography of the land under vegetation cover and the speed of flow of ice sheets and glaciers. Therefore, we invited:

  • Pau Prats (German Aerospace Center – Microwaves and Radar Institute) to talk about Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for secondary mission products of BIOMASS mission,
  • Jørgen Dall (Technical University of Denmark) will introduce us to the BIOMASS Secondary Mission Objectives: Ice Applications
  • Georg Fischer (German Aerospace Center – Microwaves and Radar Institute) will talk about ice structures.

Register here.

We thank you for dissemination of the invitation among interested colleagues!

If you have any further questions, please contact Kostas Papathanassiou and Stefanie Burkert for more information and how to participate.
