Remote Sensing Group

Helmholtz Institute Freiberg

The Remote Sensing Group is now a joint venture between the TU Bergakademie Freiberg and the Helmoltz Intitute Freiberg for Resource Technologies. The Remote Sensing Group is specialized in the remote sensing quantification of geomorphological, geological and surface characteristics and their nonlinear analysis. We ultimately aim to characterize underlying acting processes, mainly in tectonically active regions as well as potential mineral resources. Additionally, we are trying to quantify water run-off using remote sensing based hydrological modelling and we combine multi-source, multi frequency data to estimate vegetation physical properties. Our strength lies in our ability to combine data and techniques out of different scientific disciplines. 

The RSG is lead by Richard Gloaguen. Our research is mainly financed by the DFG (German Science Foundation), BMBF (German Ministry for Education and Research) and DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).
