My research areas are on ground, airborne, and satellite remote sensing of vegetation from the leaf to the globe with special focus on:
- plant structural and photosynthetic traits;
- land surface and carbon uptake phenology;
- terrestrial ecosystem primary productivity and greenness;
- global change impact on terrestrial ecosystem productivity; and
- terrestrial carbon cycle modelling.
I have done, and am doing, remote sensing of vegetation studies at ecological monitoring sites (e.g., eddy covariance tower networks); on improved product development at regional scale (e.g., leaf area index, primary productivity and land surface phenology); and on global change impact assessment on terrestrial ecosystem productivity at regional (e.g., circumpolar land surface phenology and atmospheric CO2 seasonality) and global scales. Besides remote sensing data, I use ground measurements of plant biophysical variables, photosynthetic traits, atmospheric CO2 concentration, eddy covariance CO2 fluxes and plant phenology; gridded climate data records; terrestrial ecosystem carbon cycle models; and Earth System Model (ESM) outputs.
