Sino-German SIF Workshop in Huangshan (China)

Solar-induced fluorescence or SIF workshop

Meeting in September with great scientists and friends to dicuss about synergies and possibilities to use SIF data.

Solar-induced fluorescence or SIF is an innovative measurement that serves as a proxy of plant photosynthetic activity. When plants absorb white light from the sun, they initially absorb light across the entire spectrum. When photosynthesis occurs, some of the unused energy absorbed from the sun is emitted as heat and a red glow, or SIF.
