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 variables over land. We have specialized in the use of active microwave sensors for global monitoring of soil moisture, flooding, vegetation, and other land surface variables. We are capable of working with Petabyte-scale data sets at global scale, analysing and interpreting the data with a combination of physical models and AI techniques.
