Earth Observation is the study of physical, chemical and biological earth-based systems from space. It relies on dedicated, highly specialised and high-performance satellites to conduct a plethora of measurements to enable understanding and prediction of these systems.

This talk discusses the development of a new image sensor which will allow the acquisition of high spatial and temporal resolution images of the Earth in the visible spectrum using a new imaging technology - Time Delay and Integration CMOS, in order to overcome many of the previous limitations to resolution.

A general background to Earth Observation and competing imaging technologies will be delivered.

About Physics Seminars

The weekly Physics Seminar series focuses on a broad range of physics research within SMP, along with frequent presentations from visiting researchers. Seminars are usually scheduled for 1.00pm on Tuesdays.

The talks are typically more specialised than a colloquium but are often attended by staff and PhD students across a broad range of areas. Speakers are thus encouraged to include introductory material in the talks.

All SMP researchers and HDR students are encouraged to speak. Please email Tyler Neely to register your interest.

The seminars are open so there is no need to register your attendance.
