Research interests

Optical Remote Sensing: Spectral characteristics of Arctic periglacial landscapes, Arctic coastal and inland waters;

Multi-scale working:
laboratory - field work - mesoscale raster data on interdisciplinary level (geology, limnology, hydrology, land cover);

Regional evaluation of Remote Sensing products using ground data and expert knowledge: are the already available terrestrial products reliable for the high latitudes?

Adaption of Remote Sensing products into modelling (permafrost, land surface, limnology and climate).


Research program
