Remote Sensing for Quantitative Biosphere Dynamics

Our main focus is to provide information and methods for monitoring land surface dynamics and processes in a quantitative manner. Specifically we are interested in the assessment of forest and agricultural resources as well as  water management and  soil conservation.

The methodologies we are developing are frequently centered on remote sensing data combined with other types of information, specific methodological topics are: (1) indexes development based on the spectral shape in the optical range, (2) the application of statistical time series analysis on a spatial domain, (3) identification of phenological patterns at large scale, (4) methods in hyperspectral remote sensing.
