Follow Up


1. The last Sampling Field Campaign of the year was carried out the 20th November 2017 in Majadas. The drought continues affecting the ecosystem and we hope that by January the first rains will allow the grass to grow again. 


1. The third  coordination meeting of SynerTGE was held in Madrid (INIA) the 18th October 2017. We performed a review of the research advances and planned the research path to follow. We also welcomed a new member of the group. Welcome to SynerTGE Vicente!



1. The summer is gone but we are here! We sampled the total of trees in Majadas and flied the drone with a STS aboard. No winds, no clouds (no grass unfortunately)... but we managed to get what we were looking for!


2. At the end of September we did some fieldwork using LAI 2200C as we need to get LAI from isolated trees (holm oak trees) in Majadas de Tiétar. We used the device in diffuse radiation and direct sun conditions in order to see the differences. 


3.  It has been a pleasure to hear from three incredible speakers as Marta Yebra (University of Canberra), Javier Pacheco (Max Planck institute) and José Ramón (CCHS-CSIC) talking about their work last 27th Septemberbre.

JUNE 2017

1. Here we had the last campaign of the spring season! More to come in autumn! We could obtain photos from hemispherical cameras to get the Leaf Area Index.


MAY 2017

1. The second measurement campaign using the integrating sphere was carried out the 4th and the 5th May 2017. We are happy with the results we grabbed!

2. Is there a plane coming? The INTA flight took some images as we were sampling the grass and measuring reflectance with ASD Fieldspec Spectroradiometer. Such a nice day!


APRIL 2017

3. The first measurement campaign with the integration sphere has been finished. We got to expand our spectral dataset for the Radiative Transfer Model.


2. Spring has come to Majadas. We are ready to start the next sampling campaign which will have new activities. 


1. The second sampling campaign which took place the 4th April 2017 has been a sucess. Now we have a lot of data to process! =)



MARCH 2017

1. We completed our first sampling campaign the 16th March 2017 . We reached all the proposed objectives! 



2. SynerTGE team succesfully completed the testing for the project samples. We are going to carry out the next sampling campaign coming soon.


1. The Second Coordination Meeting of SynerTGE was held in Zaragoza the 9th February 2017. The discussion on the preparations for the new field sampling was successful. Next sampling campaign will be soon with a lot of changes!



1. The 16th November 2016, Sampling Field Campaign was accomplished in Majadas del Tiétar where the regular field spectroscopy and vegetation sampling were taken.


JUNE 2016

2. A field campaign took place in Majadas in collaboration with the Forschungszentrum Jülich. Radiometric Inter-calibration of different sensors and radiation sources as well as UAV-borne spectroradiometric measurements over vegetation canopy were achieved.  


1. The SynerTGE KOM was held in Madrid (CCHS) on the 23th June 2016. Project strategies and activities were presented and discussed.
