My research has been mainly focused on remote sensing applications in vegetation. I have been actively involved in the development of physical and statistical models and the implementation of operational methodologies for the study of vegetation cover through satellite imagery, using data mostly of the solar spectrum. These activities included the operational derivation of a large number of essential climate variables for the characterization of the state of vegetation cover at local, regional and global levels, and to study processes of mass and energy exchanges in the vegetation-atmosphere system.
