Dr Weidong Xu is a Research Associate in the Department of Geography. He completed his PhD in remote sensing in the Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.


Weidong's research interests focus on monitoring land surface dynamics with thermal remote sensing. More recently, his research has involved applying thermal remote sensing techniques to address key questions regarding fire impact and effects.

This research has involved the development of a global fire detection and characterisation algorithm on geostationary satellite including SEVIRI, GOES, MTSAT and FY2.
