The Remote Sensing in Geo- and Ecosystem Reserach (RSGE) group uses Earth observation data and in-situ measurements to analyze spatio-temporal pattens in the biosphere. We model, map and monitor functional ecosystem properties, species composition and diversity to assess effects of human impacts, climatic extremes and other drivers of ecosystem changes. In these analyses, we put an emphasis on the fuzziness of spatial patterns in ecosystems and develop methods to map them as continuous fields using remote sensing data. We aim to address (geo-)ecological problems in a spatial context to gain insights in the composition and the functioning of the terrestrial biosphere.
Teaching fundamentals of Remote Sensing, Geoinformatics and Biogeography is also one of our key missions.
