To get the blog properly started I'll write about the latest news from Tartu. Last week we hosted the first seminar of the PHYSENSE (Physically-based remote sensing of forests) network here in Tartu. It's meant for the younger generation of Nordic and Baltic researchers working in our field. Everything went smoothly: the presentations were interesting and covered both measurements and modeling, and there was plenty of food to eat.
Soon it's time to start making plans for the next workshop of the network. I've had quite positive feedback from participants by email - may be there is a point in organizing the next event! (And in trying to gather a bigger crowd for audience.)
