Joint Hutton Club/EEO-AGI(S) Seminar - Future Techniques 3
Title: Terrestrial carbon in degrading drylands: A study of soils, sediments and plants from drones.
After assuring recent subscribers that this is a relatively low-traffic list we have just one more 'Future Techniques' talk this Friday, hosted jointly with our friends and colleagues at The Hutton Club.
As ever, we aim to organise joint single seminars as far as possible where there are talks on themes of common interest.
The talk will be held as usual in the Old Library, Geography, Drummond St, EH8 9XP however please note that the talk will start at *4pm* - i.e. earlier than previously advertised.
(Our next regular EEO seminar will return at the usual time on Friday 31st March.)
All welcome - from undergraduate to retired professional, and from both within and outwith the usual 'GIS'/digital mapping community - do come along! Talks are programmed to appeal to a broad audience. Refreshments provided!

Aim of the Series
The University of Edinburgh School of GeoSciences is pleased to host this seminar series, presenting topics in the broad areas of geographical information and remote sensing, under the auspices of the Edinburgh Earth Observatory. This prestigious series combines research seminars with talks of professional interest and is open to students and staff across the University and beyond, together with professionals in the field working in Edinburgh and other parts of Scotland. Supported by the Association for Geographic Information in Scotland (AGI Scotland) as a professional seminar series, it aims to be inclusive and broad-ranging. Talks are timed for the late afternoon to bring a social dimension.
These seminars also represent an important networking opportunity, with a growing audience comprising some of the key players in the Scottish geographical information industry. Talks are followed by AGI Geo-Drinks which take place in the Teviot Library Bar allowing plenty room for informal professional networking.
Our typical audience numbers 40-60 and combines staff and students from GeoSciences, Informatics and other Schools within the university, with professional colleagues from the Scottish Government, British Geological Survey, EDINA, Registers for Scotland, Historic Environment Scotland, Forest Research and several SMEs from across Central Scotland and beyond.
