Project Kick-Off Villars-sur-Glâne
Six months after the beginning of the RoDynAlpS project, the RoDynAlpS team met with the project partners in Villars-sur-Glâne, in the Café des Préalpes. The aim of the day was to share an overview of the project with the external partners and to discuss the progress made in the individual work packages. For the PhD students, it was an opportunity to engage in discussions with them, and to ask more technical questions about some of the datasets provided by them (such as aerial ortho-photographs from swisstopo, or SAR interferograms from Gamma Remote Sensing).
In the morning, after a presentation by Reynald Delaloye on the context of the project and its history, each PhD student presented the work package in which they are involved. Cecile Pellet then briefly presented work package 4, which will be mainly led by Yan Hu, during her three-year post-doctoral fellowship in Fribourg.
After lunch, Tazzio Strozzi (Gama Remote Sensing) presented the interferogram dataset his company provided to the project team, and Francesco Brardinoni (University of Bolzano) gave a talk about recent research led by his team, on a rock glacier inventory in the Italian Alps. We ended the day with interesting discussions over an apéritif.
