Remote sensing at the Open University specialises in the processing of space and air-borne imaging, spectroscopic, lidar and radar data to investigate and monitor surface and atmospheric environments on Earth and elsewhere in the Solar System. In particular, expertise exists relating to vegetation monitoring for food security, land management, biodiversity, climate change and agriculture in ecosystems such as wetlands, forests, meadows, floodplains and the Arctic. Further afield remote sensing datasets from Mars Reconnessance Orbiter, Exomars Trace Gas Orbiter and Mars Science Laboratory, are analysed using similar software techniques investigating Martian minerology, change detection and atmospheric composition and profiling.
