Do join us as we resume the Spring 2021 Online Seminar series dedicated to UK-Russia research cooperation, this coming Wednesday 28 April, to listen to and discuss with Dr Olga Tutubalina (Moscow State University) and Dr Gareth Rees (University of Cambridge).
Their seminar is entitled “Methods to research the status and change of Russia’s northern forests using multi scale remote sensing“.
‘Drs Tutubalina and Rees are co-leading a UK-Russian research project to develop and apply new methods to estimate biophysical parameters (principally GSV and LAI) for boreal forest across the whole of Russia. The project takes a multi-scale approach, from fieldwork, through the use of drones and upscaling based on high-resolution satellite data, to global-coverage remote sensing products derived from MODIS data. A major focus of the research is to understand changes in forest biophysical parameters from 2000 to 2020 in the context of regional climate change‘.
About Dr Olga Tutubalina: Leading Researcher, Laboratory of Aerospace Methods, Faculty of Geography, Moscow State University, Russia. Geographer and Cartographer engaged in the remote sensing of alpine, boreal and high-latitude environments, notably for research of ecosystem status and dynamics, and for natural hazard assessment
About Dr Gareth Rees: University Senior Lecturer with duties at the Scott Polar Research Institute and Fellow of Christ’s College. Physicist with research interests predominantly in the development and application of spaceborne remote sensing techniques to monitoring the dynamics of Arctic glaciated and vegetated terrain.
