BigData@Geo 2.0 Kick-Off Workshop- Earth Observation for Climate Change Adaptation

January 19, 2024

Today the project BigData@Geo 2.0, led by the climate research group of the Institute of Geography and Geology, invited all partners for the official kick-off workshop. Besides scientific presentations about climate (Paeth), AI (Hotho), and our remote sensing research, partners from agriculture, forestry, vineyards, conservation and local administrative institutions also had plenty of time and opportunities to suggest project deliverables for an improved climate change adaptation potential in the study area.

There were very interesting discussions with our implementation partners with regard to climate models and AI methods, as well as our space-borne and UAS-borne remote sensing data analysis. Discussing the potential for earth observation for landscape monitoring and spatio-temporal predictions was highly interesting for us and we learned a lot on how to make remote sensing even more useful for applications in climate adaptation.

We are very much looking forward to the next years of climate and environmental research for applied landscape management.
