An international team of researchers co-led by Josep Peñuelas (CSIC and CREAF) has developed a new method for monitoring changes in the photosynthetic activity of perennial conifers throughout the year. This new technique, based on the analysis of remote sensing images captured by satellites, will improve global models of atmospheric carbon capture and permit more precise predictions about climate change.
Ivette Serral has a degree in Environmental Sciences from the UAB and has been working as a technician in remote sensing and GIS at CREAF since 2002. She is currently a member of the GRUMETS research group and participates in the ConnectinGEO and Ecopotential projects. The diversity of her day to day work is stimulating, though it also makes it hard to put her mind to analysis of data and results.
During the week of October 10-14, the city of Laxenburg (Austria) will host the Earth Observation workshop meeting ConnectinGEO and ENEON Workshop Week. In the first of two workshops, initial results of the ConnectinGeo project will be presented, while the second will cover ENEON's completed work and upcoming activities. Both projects are led by CREAF.
Here you have the digital version of the Annual Report 2015. During this year we have published 172 scientific articles indexed on SCI, with highlighted publications in Nature’s Group Journals, Ecology Letters or Ecology Letters.
ECOPOTENTIAL Project is going Online! ECOPOTENTIAL is a large European-funded H2020 project that focuses its activities on a targeted set of internationally recognised Protected Areas, blending Earth Observations from remote sensing and field measurements, data analysis and modelling of current and future ecosystem conditions and services.
