A kick-off workshop for BECC action group: Fusing ecosystem models with multi-scale measurements to improve agricultural prediction of yields, soil carbon turnover, and greenhouse gas emissions
BECC - Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate - is a strategic research area between Lund University and University of Gothenburg comprising more than 200 researchers working together to better understand the impacts of climate change and land use decisions on terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity. Come and join us for the kick-off workshop of the recently funded BECC-action group "Fusing ecosystem models with multi-scale measurements to improve agricultural prediction of yields, soil carbon turnover, and greenhouse gas emissions".
Please register your participation in order to receive the coffee break or a Zoom link for remote participation.

13:00-13:10 Introduction of workshop and agriculture action group (Wenxin Zhang)
13:10-13:50 A keynote talk: the perennial revolution (Lennart Olsson)
13:50-14:10 Crop yield estimation at high spatial resolution through the assimilation of remote sensing data into a crop growth model (El Houssaine Bouras)
14:10-14:20 The UPSCALE (upscaling crop performance monitoring by linking satellite and field biosignatures) Project (Lars Eklundh)
14:20-14:30 Capturing carbon in perennial cropping systems (Jonas Ardö)
14:30-14:50 Coffee break
14:50-15:10 The deep soil carbon consequences of the conversion to perennial agriculture (Johannes Rousk)
15:10-15:30 Digging deep into soils and weather to unravel how ploughing alters the capacity of agricultural lands to store carbon (Albert Brangarí)
15:30-15:40 Microbe management: optimizing soil carbon sequestration and fertility for sustainable agriculture (Lettice Hicks)
15:40-15:50 Integration of satellite remote sensing and crop modelling for improved assessment of climate change impacts on crop yields in Sweden (Zheng Duan)
