Project Details

Description

The Danish Center for Remote Sensing (DCRS, see "www.drcs.dtu.dk") is one of the centres of the Danish National Research Foundation (Danmarks Grundforskningsfond). It is located at the Department of Electromagnetic Systems (EMI), the Technical University of Denmark. The centre conducts research relating to instruments for remote sensing and their application to Earth observation and Earth Science.
The objective of DCRS is to integrate technological R&d in the areas of remote sensing sensors, data processing, interpretation, and visualisation, with earth science studies. dcrs is continuing the sensor r&d activities at emi, however, with focus on advancing observational techniques of importance for earth observations and science. dcrs is conducting science experiments and data collection campaigns to provide original experimental data for the research of dcrs scientists and dcrs partners. the research at dcrs includes electromagnetics and geophysics modelling.
the centres technological research covers subjects within microwave techniques (measurement techniques and development of subsystems for radar and radiometers), microwave sensors (the principles of modern coherent radar, radiometry, system design, technology, and applications), and signal- and data processing methods (including the digital signal processing that transfers the raw microwave sensor data into focused and calibrated imagery, as well as the data- and image processing needed for information extraction, information presentation, data fusion, and archiving).
the centres earth science research is pursued in collaboration with associated scientists focused on the application of sar data in: glacier dynamics; Microwave Sea Ice Signatures; Geologic Mapping; Sand Dune Dynamics; and Plant and Soil Mapping.
