Prof. Schmullius’ research focuses on terrestrial surfaces ranging from operational vegetation mapping (specifically biomass and crop phenology) to land cover and soil moisture monitoring. Technical expertise includes operational and experimental Earth observation sensors with a focus on microwaves. Special interest is on global satellite monitoring concepts and big data handling jointly from the Sentinel-satellites and in situ networks.
The Science-Stakeholder Dialogue will stimulate exchange of scientific knowledge and the stakeholders’ perspective on climate. The dialogue will be introduced by a Science Keynote by Werner Kurz, reporting back from the scientific sessions followed by a discussion with five panelists from policy, industry and CSOs.
