We are happy to announce our next event, Alberto Udali, currently a Ph.D. student at the Department of Land, Environment, Agriculture and Forestry of the University of Padua. He currently works in the Forest Operation Unit research group with a special focus on precision forestry and post-harvesting biomass management. His current research interests include the innovation in the forest sector in both processes and techniques.
Alberto is part of a collaborative EU project – Carbon smart forestry under climate change (CARE4C) combines high level expertise and state of the art research in the context of carbon management in forests with advanced career building qualification by teaching, training, and involving ESR’s. In a changing climate, we see the challenge that forestry needs to contribute to a low carbon-emitting society. Whilst forests sequester carbon, they simultaneously release carbon during forest operations. CARE4C aims at substantially expanding knowledge about carbon sink by forest growth and carbon source by forest operations in order to enable carbon smart forestry under climate change. He will be presenting the concepts and some work he has done regarding his PhD project.
The title of the presentation is: The use of drones to quantify forest residues post-harvesting: real or realistic?
