Free Webinar – Climate and hydrology studies leveraging ASD VNIR spectral snow albedo measurements

This webinar will discuss snow and ice applications and the use of Malvern Panalytical’s ASD FieldSpec® spectroradiometer for data measurement and analysis.

Who should attend?
Those that have interest in snow optics, and are involved and/ or have interest in snow and ice application studies for climate and environmental monitoring purposes, and want to learn how the ASD FieldSpec spectroradiometer can be used for data measurement purposes.

Why attend?
To learn the importance of snow optical property studies for earth system models of climate, weather, and hydrology and how the ASD FieldSpec spectroradiometer aids in these studies.

What will you learn?
• The importance of studying snow optical properties and collecting measurements to validate remote sensing retrievals and constrain earth system models for climate, weather, and hydrology.
• How an ASD FieldSpec® spectroradiometer can be used to measure solar irradiance and snow reflectance/albedo, and how these measurements can be leveraged to retrieve additional snow properties like effective snow grain size and radiative forcing by light absorbing particles.
• How a drone and other equipment have been paired with the FieldSpec instrument to further advance our understanding of snow energy and mass balance, with examples from recent field campaigns.

The eighteenth conference of the Australian Near Infrared Spectroscopy Group (ANISG), co-hosted with the New Zealand Near Infrared Spectroscopy Society (NZNIRSS) will be held in April 2018 in the thermal geyserland district of Rotorua at the Novotel.

NIR technology users, researchers and students, with a common interest in NIR research, applications and developments, are invited to meet alongside major suppliers of NIR equipment and software, to share experiences centred on the versatility and value of NIR. Vendors will be present in an exhibition area at the conference.

Preceding the conference on Monday 9th April, Jim De Haseth will conduct a half day course on NIR Basics followed by a half day course presented by Brad Swarbrick on Chemometrics. A more advanced course on Monday the 9th April, will be presented by Jose Amigo, covering Hyperspectral Imaging. On Tuesday 10th April Anders Larsen will present a course on Sampling for NIR.

Confirmed speakers include Wouter Saeys, Jose Amigo Rubio, Sylvie Roussel and Anders Larsen.
