QuantaLab Laboratory for Research Methods in Quantitative Remote Sensing.

          QuantaLab is focused on quantitative methods for remote sensing in agriculture and forestry, with main interests on vegetation stress detection and precision agriculture. The QuantaLab group works with airborne CASI, AVIRIS, ROSIS, DAIS and AHS hyperspectral imagery to estimate leaf biochemical and canopy biophysical variables through leaf and canopy modelling, and the effects of chlorophyll fluorescence on leaf apparent reflectance through Radiative Transfer. Hyperspectral and thermal imagery are used to develop methods for successful estimation of vegetation pigment concentration, nitrogen, water content and leaf area index in closed and heterogeneous canopies. New research methods are based on small unmanned platforms carrying passive and active sensors for precision agriculture, environmental impact assessment, stress detection, and irrigation management. The group is participant in EU, ESA, NASA and Spanish-funded projects on hyperspectral remote sensing.
