We specialise in Earth observation of biosphere-atmosphere interactions, as well as landscape fire science. This includes wildfires and anthropocentric burning.

Our work encompasses many aspects of field/airborne/satellite remote sensing, environmental modelling, fieldwork, and in situ and laboratory measurement and experimentation.

We operate a Wildfire Testing Chamber and an Earth Observation Instrumentation and Calibration Lab outside London at Rothamsted Research.

We also operated the NCEO Airborne Earth Observatory, which supports UK Environmental Science collects airborne remote sensing data using a state-of-the-art set of hyperspectral and broadband active and passive remote sensing instruments. 

Led by Professor Martin Wooster, our team holds leading roles in both the Leverhulme Centre for Wildfires, Environment and Society and the NERC National Center for Earth Observation (NCEO).
