Research Activities
(last updated Nov. 19, 2014)



We have been working on the following three research subjects

(1) Environmental monitoring using Remote Sensing
(2) Micrometeorology and evapotranspiration
(3) Rural development and planning


(1) Environmental monitoring using Remote Sensing

Conduct research on large-scale agricultural water resources management, alpine grassland environment, yellow dust, etc.
Our primary interest is agricultural water resources management through estimations of evapotranspiration and soil moisture.
