Radiative Transfer Modelling for the Characterisation of Natural Burnt Surfaces

Dr Philip Lewis from the Department of Geography is leading a new study for the European Space Agency (ESA) investigating the characterisation of fire-affected areas at optical wavelengths from space. The project starts on 1st May 2008 and will run for 18 months. It involves collaboration with researchers at the Joint Research Centre (Dr Bernard Pinty), King's College London (Professor Martin Wooster) and South Dakota State University (Professor David Roy).
