IRTG Research Training Day | Observing and modelling vegetation



Friday 11 November 2016, 10:00 - 16:00


The Intergrated Research Training Group in collaboration with TR32 scienties in the project D2 and C3 is organizing the Research Training Day on observing and modelling vegetation. This workshop will focus on vegetation modelling and observing. The first part of the RTD in the morning will focus on vegetation in ecosystem models in general and the art to find the right level of abstraction. The RTD will also cover different techniques to measure plant traits. The second part in the afternoon is more practice and will include a guided tour through the plant phenotyping facilities and hands-on remote seinsing and a training to understand the sensitivity of model parameters.


Preliminary program


Besides the TR32 scientists from Jülich and Cologne (Prof. Dr. Karl Schneider and Prof. Dr. Uwe Rascher), we have the honour to welcome Prof. Dr. Ülo Niinemets from the the Estonian University of Life Sciences. Our visiting researcher, Professor Dr. Ülo Niinemets specializes on plant ecophysiology, volatile organic compound emission, adaptation and stress biology. If you are interested in a personal discussion on the day before the RTD, on Thursday, 10th November, please let us know and register via irtg@tr32.de.


The IRTG Research Training Day will take place Friday, 11th November 2016 (10 am - 4 pm) at the Forschungszentrum Jülich (IGB-2, building 06.2, seminar room 406, 2nd floor). All TR32 are welcome to attend this Research Training Day. To register, please send an email to irtg@tr32.de before Monday, 7th November 2016.
