Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences - EARSeL SIG LULC - NASA LCLUC Workshop 2014

First joint Workshop of the EARSeL Special Interest Group on Land Use & Land Cover and the NASA LCLUC Program on

"Frontiers in Earth Observation for
Land System Science"

offered a platform for extensive scientific exchange

156 researchers from 32 countries and all continents discussed upcoming opportunities and challenges at the beginning of this new remote sensing era during the 5th workshop of the EARSeL Special Interest Group on Land Use and Land Cover. The workshop was jointly organized between the EARSeL SIG  and NASA’s LCLUC Science Team  at the Department of Geography of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany, on March 17-18, 2014.

Keywords in the titles of 8 keynote speeches and 100 posters presented during the 5th workshop of the SIG Land Use and Land Cover

Land use and land cover monitoring is facing a new era with Landsat-8 and the upcoming Sentinels. At the same time, the recent opening of the Landsat archives marks a tide change in access to historic earth observation data. Thus, new opportunities for Earth Observation arise and the role of products from remote sensing data in the context of land system sciences becomes even greater.

Eight keynotes and 100 posters were presented within four sessions, which were organized along the following themes:
