CAPIGI Webinar | "How green is your grass? - Needs and applications for grassland monitoring"
9th of December 2021 | 15.30 - 17.00 hrs (CET)
Grassland is perhaps the most common land cover in Europe, with more than a third of agricultural land being either temporary or permanent grassland. Grasslands are very diverse in terms of management, yield and biodiversity value: They range from semi-natural grasslands with low yields and high biodiversity values to fertilized mono-cultural grasslands. And data about grassland, grassland monitoring, is very crucial to a diversity of policies: The Green Deal, the Climate Law, the Nitrate directive and other policies crave for grassland data. And – you may have guessed – satellite data and other geospatial data are the sources for grassland monitoring. In this webinar we provide three different cases of grassland data use and monitoring. What are possibilities and what are expectations? Is your neighbours grass really greener? Join us for an update of grassland monitoring in Europe.
Join us on the 9th of December to learn more about this theme. Speakers will be announced soon!
