Fall AGU 2018 SIF Technical Workshop

Applications and User Development on Solar-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence (SIF) Data Products from Spaceborne Platforms

Workshop Description

Over the last decade, Solar Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence (SIF) research has grown dramatically, leading to important advances linking SIF to plant photosynthesis. SIF measurements at a range of scales appear to match closely with ground and model-based estimates of gross primary production (GPP), capturing dynamic responses of vegetation to stress. We have reached a point where an ensemble of existing (GOME-2, GOSAT, OCO-2, TanSat, TROPOMI) and future (OCO-3, GeoCarb) Earth observations provide SIF data products to research and application communities.
We propose a half-day technical workshop fon SIF data products, current research, applications and advantages and limitations of SIF. Our aim is to help the community learn about SIF data, highlight tools and resources, and to provide an opportunity to foster growth in the community.

Workshop Agenda

Introduction of SIF

A Glow in the Light - Dr. Christian Frankenberg (30 mins)

Current Uses and Applications of available SIF data products

1) Fluorescence Fundamentals: From physiology to remote sensing - Dr. Troy Magney (20mins)

2) Global High Resolution Records of Satellite Solar-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence (SIF) for Advancing Carbon Cycle Research - Dr. Ying Sun (20 minutes)

3) Using SIF and NDVI- Dr. Compton Tucker (20 minutes)

Overview, Discussion and Tutorial on current SIF Products

1) Global Retrievals of Terrestrial Chlorophyll Fluorescence from Spaceborne Spectrometers - Dr. Philipp Koehler (30 mins)

2) First Global Terrestrial Solar-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence Mapping from TanSat satellite: algorithm and product - Dr. Liangyun Liu (20 mins)

In addition to showing where to pull data from various sources through a developed tool, the tutorial using case studies will include an Introduction to MEaSUREs project (Multi-Decadal Time Series of Vegetation Chloropyll Fluorescence and Derived Gross Primary Production). Please visit the Github for more details. (Frankenberg, Parazoo, Magney, Koehler, and Yuen) (130 minutes)
