Symposium on Progress in Remote Sensing of Photosynthesis

Wednesday 18 May 2022 (Registration closed)

Room Lumen 1, Lumen Building, Wageningen Campus

Spotlight banner (4).png


In this workshop, we want to provide an overview of current progress in remote sensing systems, methods and modelling approaches to measure and monitor photosynthesis of agricultural and natural ecosystems at different scale levels. We hope this also will provide input for the discussion on the link between remote sensing and crop and plant sciences and the identification of future research priorities.

The workshop takes place after the PhD thesis defense of Na Wang entitled “The potential of UAV-based sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence in understanding crop photosynthesis”.
You are also invited to attend the public defense of her thesis at 11:00 in the Aula.
