Remote Sensing for Soils Seminar

When we started with remote sensing for soils at the UCLouvain in 2003, we had to rely on airborne hyperspectral campaigns organized every two years by the Belgian Science policy STEREO programme. Since then, the availability and quality of optical satellite remote sensing such as the Sentinel 2 multispectral instrument have dramatically changed the paradigm for soil mapping and monitoring.
