Sabine Chabrillat, working group head at GFZ section Remote Sensing, received the Best Paper Award at the 9th Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing Evolution in Remote Sensing ‘Whispers’ 2018, held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 23 to 26 September.
Chabrillat and her co-authors received the award for their paper entitled ‘Mapping CROP variability related to soil quality and CROP stress within rain fed Mediterranean agroecosystems using hyperspectral data’. The study will be published as a conference proceeding via the digital library IEEE Xplore.
The paper is based on research of the collaboration project MASOMED (‘MApping SOil variability within rainfed MEDiterranean agroecosystems using hyperspectral data’) of GFZ, Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientes y Tecnológicas, Tel Aviv University, Spanish Council of Scientific Research, and Technical University of Denmark. It focusses on the use of hyperspectral imagery for the mapping of soil and crop variability related to crop stress and land management.
The Whispers conference deals with hyperspectral imagery and discusses advances in methods, sensors, and thematic applications. (ak)
