Milano Training school (Newsletter)
 DE   IT   FR   HI   RU   ES   EN The first training school on Remote Sensing for Ecosystem Modeling was successfully held in sunny Italy at the campus of University of Milano-Bicocca. The team of ten early stage researchers were trained to unveil reflectance and chlorophyll fluorescence from vegetation for better understanding ecosystem functioning at local and global scale. TRuStEE, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks Action funded by European Union’s HORIZON-2020 program, successfully organized its first training school at the campus of University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy. The aim of the TRuStEE is to train a new generation of scientists with complementary and interdisciplinary skills in remote sensing of vegetation, and to improve the overall knowledge on this field. During two weeks of this training, ten early stage researchers (ESRs) from highly diverse background and from all around the world (Italy, Switzerland, Greece, India, Spain, Colombia and Russia) were educated on the basics of remote sensing, ecosystem modelling and processing of remote sensing data. The First week training activities were mainly theory based lectures such as Basics on Remote Sensing, by Micol Rossini (UNIMIB); An introduction to Earth Observations and Campaigns, by Dirk Schüttemeyer (ESA); Modelling approaches by Christiaan van der Tol (ITC); Global Carbon Cycle, by Mirco Migliavacca (Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, MPIB); Introduction to Time Series Analysis in the context of Earth Observations, by Sebastian Sippel (MPIB) and Vegetation Models, by Silvia Caldararu (MPIB). ...
