Engineering and technology

Technology is the collection of techniques, skills, methods and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, etc. or it can be embedded in machines, computers, devices and factories, which can be operated by individuals without detailed knowledge of the workings of such things.This includes e.g. civil engineering, mechanical engineering,environmental engineering and environmental biotechnology.

Other activities

Our activities include seminars, workshops and field trips that aim to enrich our students knowledge and promote networking with other researchers, society and industry. We have joint activities with

Contribute to future crops – learn to understand phenotyping

Phenotyping is important for modern plant breeding. With this technique, a large quantity of traits can be measured and new varieties can be developed faster. The plant breeding industry needs people

National forest estimates

An important part of remote sensing is to continuously develop methods for producing national raster databases with estimated variables. An part of the remote sensing activities is to develop methods

Biochar systems

Biochar is the carbon rich material produced from biomass which has large potential to provide negative greenhouse gas emissions as a stable carbon stock in soil, alongside other climate and

What Sweden can learn from South Koreas fight against forest fires

Camera-monitored hills, off-road forest fire trucks, and pine saplings as far as the eye can see. These are some of the impressions from South Korea's east coast, where some of SLU's forest fire

Landscape visualization

Visualization is a tool used to illustrate the future landscape given different scenarios and also to show historical events and changes in landscape. Building a visualized landscape requires a


Radar using satellites as a platform can be used for mapping forests across large areas. The technology is similar to lidar (laser scanning) using electromagnetic waves but is less affected by e.g.

Optical satellite images

Satellites with optical sensors generate images of the Earth over relatively large areas and are useful in the production of vegetation maps or to estimate specific vegetation parameters. The sensors

Digital photogrammetry

Digital Photogrammetry is the creation of three dimensional (3D) point cloud data by applying image matching to overlapping digital images. The meaning of photogrammetry is to "measure with light",

Laser scanning

Laser scanning measures positions on objects using light pulses. Measurement coordinates are used to calculate forest area statistics and estimate different forest parameters. In airborne laser
