Using satellites for remote sensing opens up a world of useful information about the earth and how it works. The group has been focusing particularly on: Computational techniques to process and analyse remote sensing data; GPS maritime structural monitoring; Identifying and characterising turbulence/internal waves; Earthquakes and the motion of the tides; Coastal chlorophyll distribution; Fuzzy classification for mapping land cover and estimating rainfall; Using satellite imagery to assess water quality and air pollution around airports and large cities.

We research into both data acquisition and analysis and work done within the group includes new methods for performing measurements, new instruments and analysis tools and the design of entire space systems and individual spacecraft to perform given missions.  More general work has also been done on the development of automated satellite imagery analysis algorithms capable of autonomous recognition, tracking and comparison of objects.
