UCL Australia Seminar: Remote Sensing for Energy and Mineral Resources
Tuesday, 23 July 2013 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM (ACST)
Remote Sensing for Energy and Mineral Resources
Presentation by Professor Peter Muller, Mullard Space Science Laboratory
Prof. Muller is the Head of the Imaging Group at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, part of University College London.
MSSL is the largest university-based space research group in the UK and has been responsible for developing some 35 instruments flown on 25 spacecraft in its 45 year history. Prof. Muller developed automated 3D imaging systems as a CoI on the ESA Mars Express HRSC instrument and plans to do this as a collaborating scientist on the NASA MSL Curiosity.
Prof. Muller is a member of the NASA EOS MODIS & MISR science teams since 1989 responsible for developing the MODIS BRDF/albedo algorithm (joint with A. Strahler of BU) and the automated cloud-top heights and winds of clouds and aerosols from MISR. He developed the world’s first 3D stereo imaging system in the mid 1980s for SPOT stereo and has since developed 3D imaging systems from SAR interferometry and most recently combined lidar and stereo imaging.
His current research is focused on developing life detection systems using remote sensing (multi-angular, hyperspectral, 3D). Prof. Muller is Chair of the UK Space Agency Aurora Advisory Committee, which advises the UK government on future science and technology investments for Mars and lunar exploration missions.
In this seminar Prof. Muller will look at how modern techniques in remote sensing are used within the energy and resources sectors and the opportunities presented by new technological advances in the field.
