July 8, 2024

On July 4, the Earth Observation Research Cluster (EORC) welcomed Rudolf Seitz, Head of Department 1: Forest-related Information-technology, from the Bavarian State Institute of Forestry (LWF) in Freising, Bavaria.

Rudolf Seitz is a distinguished expert in remote sensing in the context of forestry and has many years of project experience, e..g., with the DLR.

The EORC Talk was dedicated to the practice-oriented research of the remote sensing team at the LWF, such as applying different sensor systems to analyze and detect calamities and other damaging events such as drought and windthrow.

The presentation provided an excellent insight into the status of forests in Bavaria. Numerous questions were asked by the scientists and students present and answered comprehensively by Rudolf Seitz. The interesting discussions and exchanges continued seamlessly into the EAGLE Summer Dialog and talks on the same day.

We are happy that Rudolf Seitz was a guest at the EORC and hope to welcome him again soon.
