SCERIN (The South, Central and East European Regional Information Network) is one of the regional networks of the Global Observation of Forest and Land Cover Dynamics (GOFC-GOLD) panel of the Global Terrestrial Observing System program for observations, modeling, and analysis to support sustainable development. SCERIN is an informal network of scientists and other professionals based in the region or with scientific interests in the SCERIN area. The SCERIN geographic domain encompasses Central Eastern and South Eastern Europe, the Danube watershed and western Black Sea coast. SCERIN contributes to GOFC-GOLD and had strong linkages with the Northern Eurasia Earth Science Partnership Initiative (NEESPI), as well as the North Eurasia’s Future Initiative (NEFI) under the auspices of Future Earth. which are programs of internationally supported Earth System Science research.
Focus: Land Cover Dynamics in the Agricultural and Protected Natural Areas in SCERIN
Dates: June 24-27, 2019
Location: Novi Sad, Serbia
University of Novi Sad Faculty of Science, Novi Sad, Serbia
The SCERIN-7 capacity building workshop will focus on the current LC dynamics in the Agricultural and Protected Natural Areas in SCERIN, with the goal to identify the typical pre-cursors of land cover change (LCC) and consider our ability via remote sensing to monitor their dynamics, and estimate their influence on the local biogeochemical cycling.
