Call for abstracts: A century of National Forest Inventories – informing past, present and future decisions

Almost 100 years have passed since 1919 when Norway started field work for the world’s first national forest inventory (NFI). Since then, NFI objectives, techniques, and resources have all evolved in response to society’s changing needs. From decision support for national, regional and local forest policies, to international reporting under the Climate Convention, to forest health monitoring, societal requirements and challenges for NFIs are becoming broader. We take this unique opportunity to celebrate the first 100 years of NFI history by bringing together researchers and practitioners with interests in forest monitoring to reflect on past challenges and lessons learned and … Continua a leggere Call for abstracts: A century of National Forest Inventories – informing past, present and future decisions

Special Issue on Forests, Agriculture and Environmental Protection

Forests and agricultural systems are an integral part of the global environment and human well‐being, providing multiple goods and services essential for people worldwide and crucial for sustainable development. Forests are seen as carbon sinks, as stabilizers of climate, as protectors of watersheds, and as conservers of biological diversity. Agriculture uses natural resources to produce commodities, which maintain life. Often these agroforestry systems are characterized by a decentral operation which impedes sometimes sustainable management. In this context, the efficient use, protection and conservation of natural resources (vegetation, water, soil, climate) in agroforestry systems are the key to achieve international sustainable development goals and ensure the promotion of an economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable future. Hence, quantitative studies from all aspects of forest, agriculture and environment sustainable management are encouraged to contribute to this Special Issue in order to promote knowledge and sustainable strategies for the preservation and management of natural resources in agroforestry systems Continua a leggere Special Issue on Forests, Agriculture and Environmental Protection

PRESENTAZIONE: La foresta cambia, dentro e fuori. Diminuisce nel mondo e ritorna ad occupare spazi abbandonati nel nostro paese. Aumentano velocemente gli alberi e crescono i boschi, nelle contrade rurali e montane, intorno alle città, negli spazi interstiziali, fuori foresta. Diminuiscono solo sulle coste, nei fondovalle e nelle pianure, per far posto a case, capannoni, infrastrutture o, al massimo, vigneti.

WORKSHOP: Il telerilevamento per il monitoraggio e la gestione del territorio

L’ENEA e l’Associazione Italiana di Telerilevamento promuovono da sette anni l’organizzazione di workshop tematici che forniscono un quadro aggiornato sul complesso panorama nazionale delle applicazioni del telerilevamento.

Negli ultimi decenni le tecnologie di telerilevamento da piattaforma aerea e satellitare si sono sviluppate proponendo oggi soluzioni applicative utili a supportare le numerose esigenze di pianificazione territoriale a diverse scale e con diversi obiettivi tematici. Dal monitoraggio degli ecosistemi naturali o semi-naturali, alla pianificazione delle risorse agricole, dalla gestione degli ambienti antropizzati di ambito urbano ai sistemi costieri e marini.
