Close-range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain

Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research
Research and Career Network - Alumni Event

Close and remote sensing techniques turned to essential methods for mapping and quantifying processes in mountain environments. Many different sensor systems, platforms and analysis approaches are available for observing and monitoring dynamic patterns and extracting information for researching triggers and modeling impacts. Phenomena researched by close- and remote sensing techniques range from geomorphology, ecology to man-environment interactions.

This virtual event invites three alumni participants of the Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research - Close-range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain reflecting on impulses of the summer school, their current scientific work and dealing with future challenges which need to be addressed by this research community.

When? Tue 7.12.2021 15:00-17:00
