Erosion modelling workshop

Event date: 
Monday, March 20, 2017 to Wednesday, March 22, 2017
Event venue: 
Ispra , Italy
Event description: 

This workshop will discuss mainly issues how the local/regional modeling results can be upscaled (or applied) at European scale. The workshop serves also as a follow-up of recent JRC modelling developments and published maps for soil erosion by water and wind. The workshop will try to focus on how various project or local/regional modelling applications can improve the “know-how” at European scale. Emphasis will also be given to management practices that can reduce soil erosion. The organisers also invite pan-European projects (e.g RECARE) to show the best management practices to reduce erosion and to demonstrate their research work in study sites. 

Scientists dealing at small scale are invited to present the possibilities and limitations of upscaling their results. Scientists operating at large scale think about how to validate his/her modelling/ mapping with small scale data.
