First Month in Hanover

The first days in Hanover where really cold. I came from Rio de Janeiro, where the temperature was approximately 35-40°C, and in Hanover, the winter was finishing. So, the temperature was between 4-9°C. It was such a huge change. Fortunately, it was only the first week, then, Spring started.
Now, some photos of Hanover.

This is the main building of the Leibniz Universität Hannover

Move to Hanover - March/2016

Thanks to the support of the program Science without Borders from Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel - CAPES, I would spend one year of my Ph.D. in Hanover, Germany. I will work with Professors Franz Rottensteiner and Christian Heipke in the Institute of Photogrammetry and GeoInformation - IPI from Leibniz Universität Hannover.

During my stay in Germany, I will develop the main model for my current research, which is crop recognition based conditional random fields using a sequence of remote sensing images.
