Remote sensing is a tool used to monitor dynamic natural phenomena, given its ability to provide a wealth of continuous and homogeneous information on the Earth's surface.
The research carried out in this field focuses mainly on the following:
- The analysis of time series of surface water temperature in both the coastal and fresh waters, in order to study their variability and anomalies, the correlation with known climate indices, and integration of data into numerical hydrodynamic models.
- The study and monitoring of wetlands, investigating the variability of the flooded areas and their relation to flood pulses.
- The determination of water quality and its variability.
- The study of the evolution of the coastline and beaches morpho-dynamics (seasonal, annual) and anthropogenic impacts.
