FORMON - Forest Monitoring to assess Forest Functioning under Air Pollution and Climate Change

ICP Forests / SwissForestLab / NFZ.forestnet Summer School 2021

The Summer School aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the concepts, approaches, and available data infrastructure of forest long-term monitoring. Novel modelling and assessment approaches will be discussed considering the expectations to future forests from a scientific, forest management, and socio-economic perspective. Experienced researchers in forest science will discuss the potential limitation of disciplinary and interdisciplinary concepts.

The participants will reflect on their own scientific work with respect to other disciplinary methods and discuss possible benefits of interdisciplinary approaches in their field.

The Summer School will complement the 9th ICP Forests Scientific Conference on the same topic "Forest Monitoring to assess Forest Functioning under Air Pollution and Climate Change”, which will take place on 7-9 June 2021 at the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL in Birmensdorf nearby Zurich.
