Research Group: Global Environmental Change and Earth Observation

Currently Active: 

We use earth observation  data, geostatistical tools and process models to investigate different aspects of global environmental change.

Group Overview

Global environmental change
Global environmental change

We focus on global environmental monitoring including innovative use of Earth observation data, climate change impacts and adaptation, and sustainability science, including Earth system science at the global scale to local community impacts and trade-offs at the other.

We have a long-standing and sustained international reputation in areas of remote sensing of vegetation, carbon flux, vegetation burning and agriculture monitoring with a strong link with European Space Agency (ESA) and publication in world-class journals. We have a world-leading reputation for research on climate change impacts and adaptation strategies, with lead authorships in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment report.

We also develop geographical information systems (GIS) and computational models that represent global-change impacts on society and natural resources at multiple spatial scales. Socio-economic impact and societal relevance are placed at the forefront of our research and have research projects in Europe, the US, South America, Africa and Asia.
