The seminar "GHG emissions assessment in agriculture, forestry and other land uses", organised by the Institute for Environmental Solutions, has ended.
During the seminar we explored existing methods for monitoring greenhouse gases in agriculture, forestry and other land uses, and the potential of Earth observation data to support these methods. Speakers included researchers and monitoring specialists, as well as representatives from the Copernicus program and the European Commission.
