EARSeL's Special Interest Group on Imaging Spectroscopy aims at encouraging interdisciplinary discussions among specialists working with innovative Earth Observation methods and technologies.
After almost 20 years, the 10th workshop goes back to its roots at the University of Zurich where the first meeting took place at the Remote Sensing Laboratories (RSL) in 1998.
For this anniversary, we welcome contributions related to any topic in spectroscopy!
