Instrument design and operations

Name Department Research
Damzen, Michael J Physics Laser Transmitters and Lidar Technology for Earth Observation and Remote Sensing. Research includes development of a new higher efficiency, wavelength versatile laser transmitter (diode-pumped Alexandrite) for future satellite-based global Earth Observation missions (e.g. for wind Doppler, aerosol and cloud 3-D profiling; altimetry of canopy vegetation etc).
Pickering, Juliet C Physics Spectroscopic instrumentation (far-IR, visible, UV and VUV); atmospheric physics (e.g. deployment of novel, Imperial

Exploring processes in the earth system

Name Department Research
Brindley, Helen E Physics Direct impacts of aerosol on the Earth's radiation budget. The role of Saharan dust in the global climate system. Atmospheric impacts on the potential for solar energy generation from the desert
Buytaert, Wouter Civil and Environmental Engineering Use of satellite imagery to analyse the global water cycle, with a particular interest in hydrological extremes such as floods and droughts. We use space-born observations of land use and land cover, topography, water storage, precipitation and other land-surface boundary processes. We work on aspects of data assimilation in hydrological models, calibration, and uncertainty analysis
Czaja, Arnaud Physics Atmosphere-Ocean Interactions;
Ghail, Richard Earth Sciences Engineering Understanding Earth and Venus geology, including plate recycling
Gupta, Sanjeev Earth Sciences Engineering Robotic exploration of Mars, MSL mission operations, planetary geology and exploration
Haigh, Joanna D Physics Radiative processes in the Earth
Liu, Jianguo Earth Sciences Engineering Digital image processing, remote sensing and GIS: technical development and applications for earth science and environmental monitoring
Maksimovic, Cedo Civil and Environmental Engineering Use of satellite imagery to analyse the global water cycle, with a particular interest in hydrological extremes such as floods and droughts. We use space-born observations of land use and land cover, topography, water storage, precipitation and other land-surface boundary processes. We work on aspects of data assimilation in hydrological models, calibration, and uncertainty analysis
