The Remote Sensing group has expertise in acquisition, processing and interpretation of data spanning the electromagnetic spectrum from ultraviolet to microwave wavelengths. Our group is involved in the development of new sensors and missions. We conduct research using data collected from satellites, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), manned aircraft and ground-based systems.
Current topics of study include sea-ice dynamics, permafrost-affected landscape change, ground deformation (using InSAR), volcanic-hazard monitoring, wildfire monitoring and mitigation, and planetary science.
