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

5th Workshop of the EARSeL Special Interest Group on Land Use and Land Cover

"Frontiers in Earth Observation for
Land System Science"

A joint workshop of the EARSeL SIG LULC and the NASA LCLUC Science Team
at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Berlin, Germany, 17-18 March, 2014


Workshop aims and scope

Landsat-8 and the upcoming Sentinels, together with an increasing number of free-access EO data archives open up new possibilities for space-based analysis of land use and land cover change. This first joint workshop of the EARSeL SIG LULC and NASA's LCLUC Science Team focuses on the new frontiers in remote sensing analyses that result from these new possibilities. The workshop is organized along four themes:

  • New sensors and emerging opportunities for land use and land cover monitoring
  • Advances in Land-Cover and Land-Use Science using Earth Observations
  • Mining the archives: better use of existing data for long-term LUCC studies
  • Frontiers in Remote Sensing of Land Cover and Land Use


Registration closed

Registration was closed 2 February, 2014.

A high number of good quality abstracts for the posters sessions are accepted.

An overwhelming high interest in the workshop caused that registration had to be closed after the early bird deadline because the limit of possible participants has been reached.

Please contact the organisation committe for any requests.

The workshop is organized in cooperation with the Global Land Project's Open Science Meeting, which will be held at the same location between 19-21 March, 2014.
