We support stakeholders and decision makers by monitoring and mapping hazards and disasters, environmental crises, sea-level rise and climate change using cutting-edge technology in remote sensing (e.g. SAR, LiDAR, optical). We will drive scientific innovation and improved understanding of hazards through development of new algorithms and systems and through symbiotic collaboration with global partners.
