Welcome to the Global Environmental Change and Earth Observation Research Group at Geography and Environment, University of Southampton. Here you will find the GECEO blog and further information regarding the research that is undertaken within the University of Southampton.
Our research focuses on the development and application of models and algorithms for retrieving information from earth observation data from airborne and satellite platforms, field instrumentation and surveys. We also develop geographical information systems (GIS) and computational models that represent global-change impacts on society and natural resources at multiple spatial scales. We have strong geocomputational and technical skills and work closely with the Institute of Complex Systems Simulation.
We apply our research to environmental management and policy-decision support and have research projects in Europe, the US, South America, Africa and Asia. Our use of geospatial technologies for public health and environmental applications is closely allied to the agendas of development programmes and international charitable foundations.
We lead the UK element of the prestigious Erasmus Mundus international Masters Programme, which brings students from around the world to study remote-sensing and geospatial techniques.
