Earth observation and technology theme
We use Earth observations from ground, aircraft and space, together with computer models, to monitor local, regional and global changes in the environment to improve our understanding of the Earth system. Specifically, advanced techniques of space geodesy, digital topography, multispectral imagery and geochronology are being developed for quantifying processes operating at or near the Earth's surface. We are also concerned with data quality and improving the usability of geographical information systems.
