During August and September 2020 a huge effort was carried out to collect soil samples in the forest-alpine ecotone.
Lennart Noordermeer defended his PhD-thesis, “Large-area forest productivity estimation using bitemporal data from airborne laser scanning and digital aerial photogrammetry”, on May 27, 2020.
On March 10, 2020, the national partners of ForestPotential were gathered for a project meeting.
In the period between July and September, a substantial field effort was carried out in the 1,500 km transect from south to north in Norway. Each of the 36 field sites was visited.
Successful kickoff for ForestPotential
The ForestPotential project was kicked off at the RunWay confernce hotel at Gardermoen on the 22nd and 23rd of March 2018. Most of the partners were present or participating online.
In the meeting, each of the partners introduced their field of expertise and recent research activities relevant to the project. Then each work package was presented and discussed in detail. The discussions were very useful and the outlook for a fruitful cooperation to reach the project goals is promising.
