The fourth edition of the Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research took place in September 2022, finally back in the lovely mountain landscape of the Ötztal valley in Tyrol, Austria. Once again, 40 participants – young researchers from all over the world – gathered in Obergurgl to learn and exchange about new concepts and solutions for mapping and monitoring mountain environments undergoing continuous change.
This time, a news team from the Austrian ORF accompanied the field work and featured the summer school and techniques of 3D environmental monitoring in a story (in German): https://tirol.orf.at/stories/3176928/
The story was also streamed in this short TV video:
