Professor Keith Morrison

Professor of Synthetic Aperture Radar


Academic Staff

Research Interests:

  • Synthetic Aperture Radar applied to terrestrial remote sensing and the retrieval of bio-geophysical parameters. Activities include laboratory, field, and modelling work. Target of interest include:
    • crops (state, health, yield)
    • forestry (health, biomass)
    • soil (moisture)
    • snow (snow water equivalent)
