Spectroscopy | VistaMilk

Spectroscopy is the study of the absorption and emission of light and other radiation by matter. Different instruments exist which use different light regions, like mid-infrared spectroscopy or near-infrared spectroscopy. These monthly meetings focus on presenting the novelties of this sector, from the utilization of novel statistical methods, to the equations to predict novel traits. In particular this group focuses on latest research in agriculture, from the analyses of soil, to food, passing through grass, and milk and animal traits predictions.

The meetings are online, on the last Tuesday of each month, from 14.00 to 15.00 GMT.
