Research at the Institute for Applied Remote Sensing / EURAC (Italy): Remote Sensing based environmental monitoring and integrated risk assessments Seminar

2 March 2016
Shackleton Building 44, Lecture Theatre B

For more information regarding this seminar, please email Dr Nathaniel O'Grady at N.O' .

Event details

Stefan is going to present the portfolio of research products and services of the EURAC's Institute for Applied Remote Sensing. This comprises a short summary of activities within the field of Earth Observation based environmental monitoring, particularly of snow, soil and vegetation parameters as well as slow moving land deformations including the potential of the new Sentinel data. Stefan will then talk about his applied research for integrated assessments of risks, vulnerability and resilience within the context of natural hazards and climate change with a particular emphasis on the need of mixed method (qualitative and quantitative) approaches. Stefan will show some examples from recent climate change vulnerability assessments in Germany and Burundi.

Speaker information

Stefan Schneiderbauer, Institute for Applied Remote Sensing / EURAC (Italy). Stefan is a visiting scientist coming from EURAC (European Academy), a non-profit research organisation in Bolzano / Northern Italy ( Stefan is a head of unit within EURAC's Institute for Applied Remote Sensing. He is specialised in the analysis of environmental and societal risks, vulnerabilities and resilience and the deployment of satellite images as well as other spatial data for respective assessments. He studied Geography in Cologne (Germany) and Louvain‐La‐Neuve (Belgium) and obtained his PhD from the department for geosciences of the Free University Berlin (Germany) in 2007. His PhD thesis addressed the estimation of populations' risks and vulnerabilities to natural hazards at various spatial scales. Work experience covers lecturing, freelance training, facilitating and consulting, as well as research at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre.
