Scientific objectives

1. Development and improvement of investigation methods (active and passive remote sensing, laser induced fluorescence, in situ and laboratory) dedicated to environmental assessment (water, soil, air)

2. Experimental and theoretical research for the physical, chemical and optical characterization of environmental components and parameters


Complementary objectives

Remote Sensing Dept. supports education at the Master (M.Sc.), and doctoral (Ph.D.), as well as PostDoc track levels: professional deveopment, career plan, communication skills, project management, team work, secondments, networking.


The main goal of the Remote Sensing Dept. is to strength the research and technological development capacities and set-up strategic partnerships with excellent research entities worldwide in order to produce and manage information on the environment.

Research interests

Our research provides coverage of the fundamentals, methods and technology, as well as application of laser remote sensing and complementary techniques within environmental domain.

Atmosphere, water and soil are considered as 3-dimensional dynamic systems in continuous interaction, and investigated by use of remote sensing techniques in synergy with other techniques.
