2nd FOR APAC Science Pitch

Join us for the second FOR APAC Science Pitch Lecture!

Monday, 23 January 2023, 2:00 – 3:00 PM

HS 888, Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse 18

Speaker: Xinyue HU, MSc., Department of Geology and Geography

Topic: „Urban Woodland: Development, Management, and Benefits for Residents

Urban growth has the biggest impact on worldwide development. However, severe challenges such as climate change and urban biodiversity loss, based on rapid urbanization and growing urban population, have affected both the lives of residents and urban nature. Urban woodland, a kind of urban nature, which provides a variety of ecosystem services and plays a vital role in urban green infrastructure. This talk will provide an overview of urban woodland research issues, classify and analyze the main sub-topics and methods, and also highlight the potential prospects of urban woodland study. Furthermore, we will also explore how urban dwellers can profit actually and potentially from urban woodland and how to make effective management strategies of urban woodland.

3rd FOR APAC Research Colloquium Session

Join us for the third FOR APAC Research Colloquium Talk!

Friday, 21 April 2023, 12:00 – 1:00 PM

HS 888, 3rd floor, Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse 18

Online: Webex  Link

Speaker: Dr. Shahnawaz SHAHNAWAZ (Department of Geoinformatics, PLUS)

Topic: “Geospatial Applications of Satellite Generated Atmospheric and Climatic Datasets” 

The presentation describes the importance of studying climate change, global warming, air pollution, glacial melt etc. and highlights spatial and temporal gaps in the data required for advanced analyses.

Further, it introduces selected satellite systems deployed for generated atmospheric and climatic datasets at regional and global scales and demonstrates their geospatial applications through some case studies.
