Chania, Crete, Greece, accompanied by

3rd joint EARSeL LULC & NASA LCLUC Workshop 11-12 July 2018

Land-Use/Cover Change & the Water-Energy-Food Nexus


The symposium offers the opportunity to EARSeL and non-EARSeL members to interact and present preliminary research between the dedicated Special Interest Groups (SIG) workshops that are organised every two years. It is a great opportunity for all interested parties to expose their research to an international scientific community. The topics addressed in each annual symposium are related to the EARSeL’s Special Interest Groups, as well as contemporary topics of high interest. ¬†Submissions and presentations should be focusing on one or more of those topics, as sessions will be mostly organised according to those topics.

  • 3D Remote Sensing
