SURGE

The project “Strength­en­ing the Adap­tive Poten­tial of the Forests of West­ern Ukraine, North­west Rus­sia and South­west Ger­many to Chang­ing Envi­ron­men­tal Con­di­tions and Soci­etal Needs “is a joint research project of Albert-Lud­wig Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg, Ger­many (coor­di­na­tor), Nation­al Forestry Uni­ver­si­ty of Ukraine, Ukraine (NFUU, part­ner) and St. Peters­burg State For­est Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty, Rus­sia (FTU, partner).

Dura­tion of the project: 01.03.2016 — 28.02.2019. The project is coor­di­nat­ed by Pro­fes­sor Hein­rich Spieck­er from Albert-Lud­wig Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg. The part­ner­ship is based on long-term coop­er­a­tion in the field of research and edu­ca­tion of Albert-Lud­wig Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg with Ukrain­ian and Russ­ian part­ners. The pro­gram includes orga­ni­za­tion and hold­ing of three sem­i­nars, two sum­mer schools, two work­shops, as well as the instal­la­tion of demon­stra­tion sites and the pur­chase of equip­ment for mea­sur­ing annu­al rings for two part­ner institutions.

Sem­i­nar and sum­mer school in Freiburg (Ger­many)

The first meet­ing on the SURGE project took place in Albert-Lud­wig Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg (Ger­many) on May 2–12, 2016. It was attend­ed by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Albert-Lud­wig Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg, Nation­al Forestry Uni­ver­si­ty of Ukraine and St. Peters­burg State For­est Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty, as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the admin­is­tra­tion of the state of Baden-Württemberg.

From FTU in the meet­ing par­tic­i­pat­ed rec­tor Belenky Yu.I., head of depart­ment of for­est tax­a­tion, for­est inven­to­ry and GIS Alek­seev A.S., FTU project coor­di­na­tor Chu­bin­sky M.A., asso­ciate pro­fes­sors Vetrov L.S. and Chernikhovsky D.M., Phd stu­dents Vagi­zov M.R., Gerasi­mo­va A.Yu. and Mikhailo­va A.A.

With­in the frame­work of the first meet­ing, a sem­i­nar and a sum­mer school for the project were held. In the sem­i­nar was pre­sent­ed the expe­ri­ence of for­est man­age­ment in West Ger­many. At the sum­mer school Ger­man col­leagues demon­strat­ed the use of den­drochrono­log­i­cal data and den­drochrono­log­i­cal equip­ment for sci­en­tif­ic research. Also were orga­nized trips to exper­i­men­tal sites and Black Forest.

Sem­i­nar and sum­mer school in St. Petersburg

From June 27 to July 1, 2017, the Inter­na­tion­al Cen­ter for Forestry and Forestry FTU and the depart­ment of for­est tax­a­tion, for­est inven­to­ry and GIS orga­nized a sem­i­nar on “For­est man­age­ment and GIS — fed­er­al and region­al lev­el” under the SURGE project “Strength­en­ing the Adap­tive Poten­tial of the Forests of West­ern Ukraine, North­west Rus­sia and South­west Ger­many to Chang­ing Envi­ron­men­tal Con­di­tions and Soci­etal Needs”. The sem­i­nar was attend­ed by teach­ers from the Albert-Lud­wig Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg, the Nation­al Forestry Uni­ver­si­ty of Ukraine and FTU as well as Lesproekt LLC.

At the end of the sem­i­nar there was an open dis­cus­sion about the pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive aspects of dif­fer­ent sys­tems of for­est inven­to­ry. Also, with­in the frame­work of the sem­i­nar, an excur­sion to Lin­dulovsky For­est was organized.

From July 3 to July 7, 2017, the Inter­na­tion­al Cen­ter for Forestry and Forestry FTU and the depart­ment of for­est tax­a­tion, for­est inven­to­ry and GIS orga­nize a sum­mer school “For­est Man­age­ment and Remote Sens­ing”.
