The objectives of this workshop are to discuss and review recent scientific advances in remote sensing of vegetation fluorescence, with a priority on space monitoring of fluorescence, and with a particular emphasis on the FLEX mission preparation. Concerned topics span the fundamental scientific issues as well as possible applications in agronomic or environmental sciences, from local scale to global scale.

Specific objectives include:

  • To review recent studies on fluorescence remote sensing from space, with  a focus on modeling studies and results from field measurement campaigns,
  • To inform the scientific community about the status of the FLEX mission (scientific and industrial studies, measurements campaigns),
  • To discuss and share points of view about possible applications of space fluorescence (carbon cycle, stress monitoring, agronomic applications,…)

Contributions on the following topics are foreseen:

  • Theoretical and experimental basis of vegetation fluorescence
  • Instrumentation, innovative developments and technological improvements
  • Active and passive fluorescence measurements
  • Methods for fluorescence retrieval
  • Validation methods
  • Atmospheric models for fluorescence retrieval
  • Ground and airborne measuring campaigns
  • Leaf and canopy fluorescence models
  • Impact of canopy structure on fluorescence observation
  • Fluorescence data from space
  • Relationship between fluorescence and photosynthesis at the canopy level
  • Fluorescence applications in vegetation monitoring
  • Assimilation of fluorescence data in models of vegetation productivity and continental surfaces
