Welcome to the Remote Sensing Group
Remote sensing is the science of gathering information about distant objects with sensors mounted on spaceborne or airborne platforms. Our research group deals mainly with the use of earth observation satellites for the retrieval of geophysical parameters over land. We specialized in the use of active (scatterometers, SARs) and passive (radiometers) microwave sensors for global monitoring of soil moisture, surface water, and other dynamic hydrologic parameters, but we also have experience in the use of optical and thermal remote sensing systems for mapping of land cover, snow, forest biomass, and many other land surface parameters. We also cooperate with scientists from hydrology, meteorology, climatology and many other geoscientific disciplines to develop novel applications of our earth observation data.
