Bernhard Bauer-Marschallinger received his master degree (MSc) in Geodesy and Geophysics from the Technical University of Vienna (TU-Wien), Austria, in 2012. He is currently pursuing the PhD degree in Remote Sensing at the TU-Wien. The studies comprise knowledge of remote sensing, geophysics and data management.
Since 2009 he is with the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation at the TU-Wien and is employed in lecturing and research. As part of the remote sensing research group, he has been involved in projects from ESA, EU FP7, Copernicus Global Land Services and Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).
He is currently working on a new design of the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) software engine in order to process the observations from the Sentinel-1 SARs, focusing on the efficiency in storage and computing. On that matter, he carries out in-depth research on effects from spatial referencing of raster data, and how grids and datacubes are designed in order to provide efficient and accurate data handling.
Concerning applications of remote sensing, the preparation and exploitation of the satellite data for the retrieval of geophysical variables is in the focus of his research, aiming on the retrieval of soil moisture, forest health and water bodies. Most recently, he researches on the fusion of satellite observations from different spatial and temporal scales. He is also investigating long-term remote sensing observations in order to research on large-scale hydrology and climate change effects.
