Within the centre our staff and students are engaged in three main areas of research, each of which involves close collaboration with scientific institutions, government agencies and private industry across Australia and globally.
The three areas are:
- Biophysical Remote Sensing
Understanding how remotely sensing can be used to measure, map and monitor biological, physical and chemical properties of the earth’s environments.
- Image Acquisition, Processing, Analysis and Visualisation
Techniques for collecting and transforming data collected from satellite, aircraft, drones, and in-situ sensors to measure, map and monitor biophysical information.
- Communication, Sharing and Application
Techniques for effective use of biophysical information derived from remotely sensed data across science, industry and government.
Research activities take two main forms: Centre research coordination & training and core project areas.
